Lenovo X120e Upgrade Ram from 4GB to 6GB or 8GB

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all i would like to upgrade my laptop's speed for general use and for a slight gaming performance improvement boost,
my laptop can run GTA San Andreas at a good speed on med resolution and on high it is almost playable

furthermore all around performance is good even known my the cpu is a very weak one since i replaced the HDD with an ssd and since then it has been working much faster and the GPU is very good in comparison to the CPU

my laptop specs are:

CPU: AMD E-240 @1.5 Ghz with 0.5MB cash
RAM: 2X2GB (4GB total) DDR3 1333Mhz ram
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6310
Storage: SSD Corsair force GT 120GB
O/S: Windows 7 ultimate 64 Bit

Ram usage is 23% after booting windows when nothing is open and usually only goes up to about 75% usage when working on it or playing on it.

I am aware that this laptop isent really built for gaming and high performance and have other rigs for that stuff

HOWEVER i am loving this laptop very much and wona get it to perform even better then now and surprisingly it has very respectable performance believe it or not it is much much faster then any Intel Atom laptop that i have ever seen however i need to know if upgrading from 4 GB to 6GB or 8GB will make a difference? and if so witch one i should get 6 or 8 GB

Thank you.

Upgrading the ram wont make a difference unless you are running out of ram. i have the successor of your laptop (x130e), which is pretty much the same deal, just a little mod to the casing. the CPU is soldered on so you wont be able to upgrade that and the GPU is onboard the CPU. so pretty much you can't really do anything.
