"Can You Upgrade A Laptop?"

Is Your Laptop Original?

Can You Upgrade Your Laptop?

A laptop may be an inanimate object, but that doesn’t stop you loving it. On Only Fools and Horses, Trigger was very fond of his broom – same broom for 20 years! So how about your laptop?

What components can you change on your laptop?

Whilst you may be very fond of your laptop, there are times it won’t be performing as you need it to. Do you need to go and buy a new one, or can you upgrade it? There are times when you’ll have no option but to give it the last rites, but in many instances you can replace parts and give it a new lease of life.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the parts that can be replaced or upgraded on your laptop, although this will depend on the make and model of your laptop.

  • Screen
  • Keyboard
  • Memory
  • Hard Drive
  • CD/DVD Drives

There are several things that you can do to help prolong the life of your laptop, and it’s bits and pieces, like the screen and the battery, which we have covered in previous blog posts.

If you love your laptop but it’s driving you crazy because it’s not behaving itself, there may be hope! Alternatively, should a new machine be the answer, you can still transfer all of your data from your old machine to new – as long as you haven’t had a hard drive or other major failure without a backup procedure in place…..
