Lenovo B500 Upgrade capability

  Uniquegirl 19:34 PM 22 May 11

I've had a Laptop for 7 years, but it's now past being capable of expanding. I have a budget of £500 and like the look of the Lenovo Ideacenter B500 but cannot find out about the upgrade capability of it for the future. Does it run on 32 or 64 bit operating system and can the processor ever be upgraded ? Can the RAM be expanded ? Also can I add an ESATA port for faster backup at some later point ? Any guidance on any, or all of these questions will be gratefully received, I don't want to spend £500 and find I need a new PC in four years because I didn't think ahead......BTW I use the Internet mainly, and store a lot of photographs and some music and videos, but as yet I'm not a gamer nor do I download a huge amount of additional programs, UniqueGirl

The only upgrage that can be made to such a PC is an increase in the RAM, even that might be slightly difficult on what I can see of that chassie. That is not strictly true, of course, but without a considerable knowlege and experience the others are impossible.
