buy new, usually used laptops batterys dont work. and they are expensive to replace, like 70-100$, memory\HDD is the only other things you can upgrade though.

You can upgrade the processor, hard drive, and RAM. That is all.

its best to buy the best pc u can afford laptop wise, its just so much easier that way , no need to upgrade for a while, its a pain in the butt to upgrade laptops, even memory, most laptops ive seen only have 2 ram slots etc. latops are so much cheaper now too, theyre very affordable, save upf or a decent one.
