Upgrading my Laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I'm about to start my Information Systems & Technology degree, and I'm wondering if my current laptop setup is sufficient.

 

I currently have this laptop, https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B075FLBJV7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Acer Aspire E 15 Laptop, 15.6" Full HD, 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U, GeForce MX150, 8GB RAM Memory, 256GB SSD, E5-576G-5762

Edit: By "upgrade" , I'm really meaning memory, RAM, graphics, not necessarily getting a brand new laptop.

Only thing you can upgrade in that laptop is ram. Check your curriculum for the apps and workloads then check their recommended specifications then do the math.


y'all need to poop more often.

CPU and GPU are not upgradeable, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD are decent already
