Laptop upgradesWed, Mar 28, 2012 at 1:21PM
Ok, so my ThinkPad is no longer the power beast it once was, so it’s time to upgrade it a bit. On agenda is:
- a wireless-N card that’s OS X compatible, so I can finally take my laptop places
- low(ish)-capacity SSD drive (I’ll remote-mount my home directory from a PogoPlug)
- more RAM (I don’t know about this one, DDR2 memory is expensive since DDR3 took its place)
- faster and less power-hungry processor (several on eBay have popped up for about $100)
These upgrades should prolong the life of my baby for another 2 to 3 years. Within that timeframe, I expect to purchase a 27-inch iMac for a desktop machine, slowly reducing my laptop to a mobile daily grinder.
