ok so i have just got a new laptop to do all my assignments instead of using slow uni computers
HP Pavilion g6-1244sa 15.6" Laptop - Blue at cheap prices | PC World
with an intel i5-2430m CPU and 6gb RAM
now when i run a large exel and word program with 2 or 3 minitab programs (data analysis program), my laptop starts to slow down when say carrying out a large data calculation witch gives a fair amount of information.
is this my processor that is coursing the problem or is it the RAM i.e. if i upgrade it to 8Gb from 6Gb of RAM will this speed up the laptop
(also ruining 2 external monitors + laptop screen at the same time)
thanks for the advice 1adf1
