So I have one of these cheap HP computers .
Well, more like an 86x chromebook it has 65 gigs of memory.
Already got rid of the HP Windows mess and started looking into a new harddrive. As I'm reading up on it and its embeded into the motherboard.
Next thing looked into the ram and decided to maybe up grade that but nope lol! 4g of ram is all it can do.
Sd card memory is the only internal way to go as far as more memory .
This is not the best laptop but it is responsive along with Linux mint.

It feels like a chrome book but with 86x power not bad.
Down fall is the memory and no ethernet port.
But it was free so I can't bitch I guess.

Anyone have one of these and what have you done to improve it?

if you install lshw , or have it installed already you can get nice output using :

Code:
sudo lshw -html > /home/$USER/Desktop/info.html
