upgrading a laptop is quite pointless.

a laptop, unless it isnt really a laptop doesnt have enough space to be upgraded.

You could try to upgrade the RAM along with the hard drive - if you can find the specific model.

Agreed.

you're better off just buying a new laptop at this point. For some reason, parts for a laptop are like 3x the price a part would cost for a desktop build.
