the easiest and work our way to down.
The easiest way to make your laptop faster is to add
more RAM. RAM is essentially the virtual memory
for your computer. Most computers purchased in
the last year or two will have either 2 GB's of RAM
or 4 GB's of RAM. Typically laptops have two slots
for RAM. If you bring in your computer to a store
they will be able to help you find the RAM that you
need to make your computer faster. You are looking
for 8GB's of RAM to really speed things up. That is

Another easy way to free up processing power on
your computer and make it faster is to check what
running processes you have. Most laptops ship with
about ten programs that turn on every time you start
up your computer. Most of these are unnecessary
and can be disabled for a nice speed boost. Also,
many programs you install will automatically turn
on every time your computer starts. For the most
part, this is completely unnecessary. You almost
always just need a program when you need it, and
don't need it running in the background. Turning
off these programs will make your laptop signifi-
