Hello, I bought a very inexpensive little netbook off of ebay. It's a VIA-ARM VT8500. It has a tiny hard drive but that's not a big deal I don't think. I have a flash drive with a lot of GB. But the RAM is only 128 MB. I don't want to play games or anything like that on it, but I would like to be able to surf the net a little bit and check my Facebook page. I am wondering if anyone knows if I can buy more RAM for this type of computer and if so, what I should get. I've never purchased or installed RAM so I don't know what to look for to see if I can upgrade it. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello cakes80.... Welcome to GeeksToGo,, :D ;) ;)

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

I would not count on you being able to upgrade that netbook. The Worlds cheapest netbook didn't get that title for its upgrade capabilities. It is very likely the RAM modules are mounted directly on the motherboard to cut costs. Check your manual.
