    Well besides putting in 4GB of ram, you can put in a 7200rpm hard drive. Or if money is not an option, you could put in an SSD.

    well.. true.. SSD would help.. xD.. but that's a lot of money for not so much space.. hmmm..

    I'm having troubles running "Second Life" as it struggles to render... you feel you are going to crash like 10 times per minute..

    upgrade the screen, and then the cpu. requires some logic board reworking and a steady hand with the soldering iron, but it's totally worth it.

    There are limited upgrades we can do to a laptop once we buy it. Upgrade the memory and upgrade the disk drive are it.

    lol... well.. i'm upgrading the ram and the HD this week...

    Is there any free software to measure the benchmark of my system.. like "BurnIt" for windows?

    I want to measure before and after on a technical level...

    Thank you
