Sony Vaio VGN-2FW21M Upgrade Options

Hello,

I have a Sony VGN-W21M laptop which was quite a hi spec laptop about 4 years ago.

I am now using it for music production which is very demanding in computer resources in terms of CPU / RAM and hard drive to provide minimal latency, large track count and sample streamng in real time.

I have been looking at current laptops, thinking I need to upgrade (MacBook Pro 2012, Samsung series 7 gamer etc etc).

Obviously that means a lot of expenditure. I was wondering if further upgrading the Sony is worth considering? I already ugraded to a larger hard drive at 7200RPM, RAM to Gb, Windows 7 64bit from Vista.

What are my other options. Can I add any more RAM, what ar my options(and costs) of upgradng to an SSD, is there anything I can do about the processor, is a better battery available?

Any help would be appreciated.

How much ram do you have in it? 4Gb is max.
About the only thing you can do with that is swap out that 7200rpm drive for an SSD.
