What I'm thinking about doing is taking the parts from my wife's laptop(which she doesn't use anymore) and putting them in my laptop (which I would completely gut out.
I have a Toshiba M65 with a 17in screen and have had it for over 5 years and I've pretty much maxed out the RAM and HD and recently replaced the LCD screen. It's been a great computer and is great for my profession (graphic/ web design).
anyways I bought a laptop for my wife about 2 years ago, its a Toshiba A105 model. It pretty much has better parts than mine (is a dual core, and can handle RAM up to 4GB) compared to mine which is a (1.73ghz and 2GB RAM max). I would just start using her's but it only has a 15" screen and I can't stand doing Graphic Design on it.
so since my wife doesn't use it and wants a Netbook. I figure instead of me getting a new laptop (which I'm well past due) I was thinking of just trying to swap the parts from hers and put them in mine.
Hope this makes since on what I'm thinking about trying and any help would be great
