It looks as though its got max Memory so you cant up grade there,You may be able to put a slightly bigger hard drive in but if it was me I would keep it for a back up laptop and buy a new one.

Probably cheaper to buy new anyway and be more future proof, Lots of good cheap laptops around today.

Take a look in Reviews here at PCA on Laptops.

Laptops are quite difficult to upgrade, unless it was custom built in the first place. Treat yourself to a new one!

I agree with the others. You're already running with the maximum amount of RAM, and apart from the hard drive there's nothing you can do by way of upgrading - go for a new machine.
