Upgrading your Notebook PC

Posted on Tuesday, Jul 25 2006 @ 10:01 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The easiest and most efficient upgrades you can make to a notebook PC are usually the memory and hard drive. Short-Media shows you what you need to know to boost your performance.

"A standard notebook hard drive operates at 4200 RPM (rotations per minute) while modern desktop drives spin at 7200 RPM. This lower speed means slower access to information, which means more time drumming your fingers. Furthermore, notebooks are often sold with only 256MB to 512MB of memory, which is also often shared with the video card. This can cut usable memory by as much as 25% in some cases!"
