My friend wants to get an AIO due to space issues. What can be upgraded on an AIO down the road? It will just be a email machine basically, so I don't anticipate any upgrading of video concerns, but will the RAM be upgradable?
 

Thank you!

RAM is tied to the motherboard.

 

RAM modules can only be entered into RAM slots on the motherboard.

 

What manufacturer and model system...are you referring to?

I don't know what she will wind up buying yet. I was just wondering if anything can be upgraded later.

 

Louis, your question indicates to me that RAM upgrades may be manufacturer specific? As in some makers you CAN upgrade RAM, but on some you can't?

 

Thanks for your reply.

RAM upgrades are motherboard specific.  Generally, a motherboard supports up to a certain level/type of RAM and a certain amount of RAM.  The documentation for these things is set by the motherboard manufacturer.

 

I don't know much about AIOs, but I would not expect them to be upgradeable, generally speaking.  In my mind, they are akin to owning a laptops, systems with little built-in opportunity for changing much of anything.  I could be wrong...I'd have to see the system specs to know.

 

Worth A Look
