I'm looking to possibly upgrade my dell inspiron 1720 laptop.
not sure where to start, or it its even worth upgrading and old laptop (2007).
Vista home premium 32 bit
service pack 2
intel core2 duo CPU T7250 2.00GHz
just under 300gb storage split between 3 drives, OS 136gb, datapart1 149gb, recovery 9.99gb
I'm not sure where to start, whether to do the processor or the ram or both. I only use 68 of the OS memory, so don't think I need to upgrade storage (unless maybe a small SSD would work it this laptop)
I've done a few searches to try to find out what I could do, but am getting conflicting information. nothing more recent than 2010. some say it can be upgraded but will probably overheat (it dose get very hot as it is), others say that a new processor won't get as hot as the one already installed.
I generally use it for steaming TV/youtube, a little word processing/spreadsheet, downloading eBooks, and playing older games (monkey island/zoo tycoon).
I don't need the newest or best, just want to get it running a little better.
thanks for any advice.
