Also is 8gb RAM a real improvement on 4GB that is worth the extra cost or less memory to compensate? Read More

SSD I think is the best upgrade to any laptop

memory is dependent on what you are doing 4gb plenty for basic browsing and word docs but if your doing any video, gaming etc 8 would be better

SSD is the best upgrade you can get, but costly
As above for memory ^

It depends on how much space you need and how much you're overcharged for it but they are certainly a significant performance boost.

Upgrades are more cost effective for the larger capacities.

Not having enough memory causes massive slow downs, but having more than you need has no effect so a sensible amount depends entirely on what you're doing and whether the machine you're considering can be added to later. 4GB will be exceeded by a reasonable number of people though, so 8GB isn't extravagant/specialised.

best upgrade even for older laptop or pc !

A 120GB drive can be really cheap and may be enough if you can fit a second drive (or use a nas for additional storage) and can be under £30. Even a 256GB drive won't break the bank. They seem to really hammer the price for prefitting then in laptops though I notice. You could clone the HDD in a cheaper laptop if you're confident technically to do it.

Just get one yourself and fit it, much better value and you can whack the HDD in an enclosure. Can get 250GB for under £50 now. Check the laptop you're getting can be upgraded easily, but most are just one or two screws and it doesn't affect the warranty normally.

You can't put a price on time. The difference with an SSD is significant, can't recommend enough.

How much would it cost roughly to upgrade a Dell inspirion do you think?
