QUESTION
what is a good ram and gb size to have on your laptop? want to use it for music, photos, essays, internet..?
and games etc.. but want it to run fast. is it worth gettingan external hard drive aswel?

ANSWER
RAM:
Try to find at least 3gb or RAM, so you don’t have to upgrade it in a year. My computer came with 3gb, and it was pretty inexpensive. Especially with how Windows keeps updating itself, you’ll find that your computer will get very slow, very fast unless you have at least 3gb ram.

HARD DRIVE:
320 GB is the “low-end” nowadays. This should be fine, but music and photos can eat this up very quickly. If you plan to (or even think you might possibly) be playing any games, you will definitely want to find 500GB or more.

Both of my suggestions are intended to avoid any headaches down the road. Remember – there’s a new Windows coming out, and you might be able to upgrade to it.
