Hey Guys,

 

First time here so please excuse any wrong postings.

 

Many moons ago in the early days of desktops I started building computers for myself after going to a local version of the so called “computer experts” and quickly realising that I may have well been speaking in hieroglyphs, I am no expert in this field (as the questions below will prove) and certainly the technology has changed considerably since those days so I have a couple of questions I would like answered if it's at all possible.

 

Aspire One notepad:- not built

I originally got this to use when I travelled, however it's a little aged now (about 5 or 6 years old) but it's still working and I would like to use it to learn some programming, due to it's age it only has 1Gb Ram and it cannot be increased to more than 2Gb, I would like to upgrade to 4Gb, is there anyway I can over-ride this restriction rather than use it as a paper weight?

It's probably got the Atom processor that can only address 2GB of memory... no getting around that.

 

It will run a light Linux distro just fine though which would give you more than enough grunt for your programming needs.

Lubuntu should run well on it. KDE desktop isn't all that anyhow.
