After a few days with my netbook, I’ve decided to buy some upgrades to better my experience with it.
- Upgrade the 4GB SSD drive to 16GB ([Super Talent FPM16GHAE])(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820609350). I could’ve bought a Runcorebut size was more of a concern than the speed. So far it’s been fine. I actually found someone on eBay selling the Super Talent for a lower price than Newegg and free shipping.
- Upgrade the 1GB ram to 2GB (Kingston 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667)
- Buy a 16GB SDHC card (A-DATA 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC))
- A case (Case Logic HDC3) Good price at Best Buy if you can find it. Both netbook and plug fits very well with some room for other things.
Here’s the video I posted on YouTube on installing the ram. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-SEVga3Niw]
I didn’t bother posting another video for installing the new SSD drive because it’s fairly the same procedure as the ram upgrade.
Here’s the video where I got the idea to use the Case Logic HDC3 case. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo0UoWGJIt0]
Cost for all the upgrades were around $100. With the price of my netbook, it still cost less than the average startup price for a netbook.
