I've upgraded so many that I can't say one is harder than that next. All of them took a Philips screwdriver and you open it up or remove a keyboard and pop in the stick of RAM.
Since you can't change the CPU you usually get the better CPU.
Too bad you didn't share the models and prices since with falling laptop prices you usually can get a better deal with a laptop and not get strained doing office work on a lilliputian keyboard and device.
Hi, I am looking to buy a netbook and looking for some advice, as I'm no expert. I'm trying to choose between 2 models. Don't want to mention specific brands or models, but one has a 1.6Ghz processor, with 1Gb RAM, but upgeradable to 2Gb. The other has 1.86 Ghz processor & 1 Gb RAM, but difficult to upgrade RAM. I'm only planning to use it for office work & some internet access, no gaming or complex stuff.
Can anybody advise about which model would have better (faster) performance, ie: the one with a slightly smaller processor, but with RAM upgraded to 2Gb, or the bigger capacity processor but 1Gb RAM? The first option would be about $75 more expensive - is the extra cost worth it?
