So I just recently purchased a Hp Mini 110-3000. I have been looking into how I can upgrade certain features with this netbook. I recently upgraded my RAM to a 2gb DDR2 and it works great. I been seeing something alot about a HD decoder card? I have read that it can help watching videos in HD. I do not play any games whatsoever and just want a fast, well operating netbook, with all of the avaliable upgrades. Is there anything else I can do to it besides upgrading the RAM, HD decoder, or maybe even hard drive and if so how do i go about it. Thanks for taking the time guys!
There isn't much else you can do with a notebook or netbook. Save for RAM and a hard drive, it's nearly impossible to upgrade GPU's or CPU's. If you want something with more power, return it and go with a notebook. If not, I'd look into perhaps a solid state drive.
SSD drive is a great option. I just installed a PNY 120gb SSD hard drive in my Mini 110 and it has increased the speed tremendously. The hard drive is not one of the best but does speed up boot times and overall fuction. From the time I hit the power switch to the desktop it takes 18 secs and shut down is 7 secs, big difference. It's a well worth upgrade if you can put out the money. Id say its 35% faster now.
