Pending Laptop Upgrades

on August 13th, 2009 by Matt | No Comments »

As you probably know, I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop. If you don’t, go to the “PC Specs” page of my site. 😛

Anyway, I’ve lately been thinking of upgrading a couple aspects of it.

At the moment I only have 2.5 GB DDR2 Ram (one 2GB, one 512MB). Now, it’s better than it was when I got it, at 2 GB DDR2 Ram, but I know I can go higher. So I’m thinking of either getting 2x2GB DDR3 Ram or 2x1GB DDR3 Ram. The main reason is because I’m moving to x64 very soon and want to get what I can out of my Laptop.

The next thing I’m planning on upgrading is the internal HDD. Currently I have 290GB, and usually have under 80GB of space available. Yes, I do have a 1TB external HDD, but I don’t want to have to plug that in every time I need to access something. I’m thinking either a 500GB internal HDD, or even a 1TB internal HDD.

Yes, I know this stuff costs money but it will (no doubt) help me in the long run, because I’m not planning on buying a new laptop anytime soon. 😉 I’m hoping to get these upgrades before 2010, maybe for Christmas? 😀
