    You can upgrade:

    RAM - You can unofficially (but I guarantee it works because I have it) upgrade to 8GB of RAM if you update the firmware

    Hard Drive - You can upgrade to an SSD which is the most important upgrade you'll ever do (it will feel like a brand new computer)

    You cannot upgrade the CPU (2.4/2.53/2.66Ghz) or GPU (9600m)
