Okay, I'm going to list my laptop's specs first:
Toshiba Satellite L305
genuine intel cpu 585 @ 2.16 GHz
32 bit op-system
So, my laptop is getting kind of dated and hardly manages to multitask without maxing out the cpu and I was thinking about upgrading some of the internals. I don't really have a whole lot of money right now, or I would upgrade to a desktop (I have been wanting to build my own computer for quite some time now!) I have viewed the processes that are running at any given time, and it seems like most of them are ones that are necessary.
What I would like to do is get more ram, possibly upgrade the processor, and also maybe get a 64 bit Windows 7 too. It doesn't have to be extremely fast, but I would at least like it to run programs and multitask decently without maxing out the cpu. Lol. I could really use some direction though, and I also would like to know how YOU would go about upgrading my laptop if it was yours. Any insights and considerations you could give me would be much appreciated.
Thank you so much, and I look forward to your replies!
