Someone I know has this laptop and It was given to them by the people they work for. The problem is this computer is not good enough for the task they use it for, I could easily upgrade the ram but it is the companies laptop so I can not. Is there anyway to upgrade the laptop externaly with some device. The help would be very appreciated.

Have your friend make a case to his/her managers for why a RAM upgrade would be necessary in order for him/her to do their work.

WARNING!! THE THINGS I SAY ARE BASED OFF EXPERIENCE AND MIGHT NOT BE TOTALLY ACURATE

I feel so freaking bad for all the people without PCS that are having to pay so much because of the gpu shortage and just the prices right now. I just feel so thankful that I was able to build my pc for MSRP (with the exception of my CPU; see below) in November right before everything got terrible! Good luck to everyone trying to get a GPU. 🙂

 

 

A little about me: A person with a chromebook in a big world were windows computers dominate the consumer and market space. He has one chance to finally get himself a Windows computer. But wait, the scalpers, they take his cpu causing him to have to wait for it for three whole months even though he has also the other parts. To this day, he still waits for his long-lost ryzen 3 3100. He hopes that one day it will arrive.. (update: it arrived in March and now I have a fully functioning pc)

No, you can't "upgrade" a laptop externally.

You can throw a lighter OS on it, but that's it.

05Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0, 3.1 Gen1)

10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2 (USB 3.1 Gen2)

20Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 

40Gb/s - USB 4.0, Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4
