But, I'm back. I will be working on posting useful tech nuggets again.
One of the questions I have gotten lately is can older laptops be upgraded? My answer is ... yes, most of the time. I have been doing two specific things recently to upgrade laptops.
1. Upgrade RAM. Most laptops can have more memory added to it. From a tech cost, adding memory is very inexpensive (especially from a cost to benefit analysis).
- The first thing is to find out how much memory your laptop has. I frequently use crucial.com, it has a scanner that your can use to find out how much memory your laptop has and how much it can have.
- With that information, you can then browse that web for the best prices for the memory.
- Installing memory (on most laptops) is fairly easy, if you don't have a geek at your disposal, try searching the Internet for the service manual for your particular laptop.
