    lol
    nothing at all!
    some mobos will allow if you can find the pll chip,but she would barely let me take it apart to put the 2gb stick in,let alone have it to pieces for fractions of a gig increase!
    in honesty one of the amd fusion netbooks would be choice,the graphics power even with 2gb is pretty crap.

    no worries mate,if i wanted a netbook i would go sign up for an mobile internet deal where they throw a netbook/lappy in.
    that one you linked is the same as the mrs one,except she got xp so it is a little lighter on the cpu,and your link is already out of stock!
    whats the top of your budget?

    its not for me, someone i know is trying to build a desktop pc using an old 4200+ from my rig, it'll be around £150 for the DVD+HD+Windows that they need so i think it'll be better if they spend the money on a netbook as they've already got a few desktops ranging from currrent tech down to pentium 4

    Not much! Buy new battery cells instead and ignore the "do not open" warning sticker on your stock battery.

    Win win! :laugh:

    Or you can go to PC world or something and ask for some of their batteries from their recyling thingy, and then find the good cells out the batteries and get FREE new battery : ]

    You can even bodge together a huge battery yourself :laugh:

    google 'Laptop Battery' and see for yourselfs.

    you could re-build your old battry like you suggested pantha but theres a lot of work that goes into it and you NEED to know where to get new cells from. I dont even know how much they cost

    Linux is good for lower system requirements and since it doesn't really have games it works out good for netbooks that cant really play games.

    As for batteries on ebay the sell a lot of cheap Chinese fake batteries, for a camcorder you can pay up to £200 for a battery for a real one but a China one just £20 inc postage lol. They make decent spares.

    EDIT: Just messin' about with the Sega Master System today, playing Hang-On and The Ninja.
