So, we have a laptop that we are either gonna upgrade or scrap. It runs slow and really needs something done
The spec at the moment is
It's and Advent K4000, CELERON 530 1.7GHZ, 2Gb Mem, Windows Vista.

So is it worthwhile getting 4gb mem, upgrading to Windows 7? (It only has 2 mem slots hence 4gb only)
Also is it possible to swap out the processor for something a bit more beefier.

The memory upgrade and SW upgrade I can handle myself, but if it can take a processor swap, I'd probably have to hand it ovr to someone.

So Matt, what do you think?

Wife really needs it for running a new teaching program, "Maths makes sense" also used for MS Office and general browsing.
We've a netbook but that doesn't have the CD rom to load the program onto it.
And I know I could buy a external drive to get the program onto it.

Cheers Matt,
Found the following online
CPUIntel Celeron M 530 (1.73 GHz)BIOSPhoenix BIOS. Press F2 to enterChipsetIntel GL960 Express

I am basically going to do a back-up of the filees I need to keep, remove all the photo's onto CD's and then defrag it, and then re-install windows.
At the same time I will get some additional memory, I will see if I can get a new processor to fit but that will be with a few bits of research.
Cheers
