I have much basic computer knowledge and have built a few PCs in my day, but have never had to upgrade a laptop before, let alone netbook.

My first question is about RAM, I've read my netbook takes DDR3 ram and 2gb is the max. Am I correct to assume any 2gb DDR3 ram will be compatible?

And secondly can I upgrade the hard drive to a solid state hard drive and if so what specifications do I need to look for in a solid state drive?

What is the model of your laptop?  Most laptops take SO-DIMM so you need to make sure you are buying the right kind of RAM.  In many laptops, it is possible to replace the standard hard disk with a solid state drive.  You need to make sure the laptop uses SATA II or III (Most do) and how much space you want on the drive.  You also need to be aware that unless you clone your old hard drive, you may need to reinstall the operating system, programs, and data, so backing up is very important before changing the drives.
