Re: upgrade

In reply to: aspire switch 10 upgrade

The specs should be on the Acer site, in most reviews, possibly on the site of the shop where you bought it, and for a small part in the documentation that came with the unit (these tend to be rather general, and describe several different models in one document). What did you find already, and what information are you missing.

If not in these sources, try crucial.com for information about the possible configuratiosn of RAM.

Changing the processor, the video RAM and the battery into one that has a three times larger capacity is much more difficult, if not impossible. But why did you buy such an underpowered laptop?

NO GO ON CPU UPGRADE!

In reply to: aspire switch 10 upgrade

The CPU is an Atom and soldered onto the motherboard. You can throw that idea out the window.

The RAM and SSD can be upgraded. It looks like this officially supports 8gb of RAM. I have seen units where you can double this unofficially with mixed results but you can do 8gb.

Unfortunately this is a lower end unit meant to be low cost, not a performance powerhouse. Use it for what it is. It will never be a gaming computer.
