Personally, I would strongly strongly recommend getting a desktop instead. Most laptop components are specially under clocked to save on battery life, thus reducing the speed of processing. Further more, better components are available for the desktop and offers better upgrade potential than a laptop.
Take the main units for speed for example. Desktop HDD goes up to 15K rpm, while laptops offer up to 7.2k rpm (standard for desktop) Processors will definitely be faster than their mobile counterparts. It's cheaper to get 4X1GB ram in a desktop than get 2X2gb for your laptop. Discrete GPUs in desktop also are way faster than integrated GPU from intel on the motherboard.
Conclusion, laptops are for travel, don't expect real speed from them. Desktops, for all their bulk and power hungry components, offer more bang for your buck in terms of speed.
here's a decent registry cleaner.
it's free and legal. works pretty well for me. (nonetheless, do a Windows restore Backup first before u try)

Glad we agree. I find my new desktop much much faster than my laptop, at about the same cost.
Wah new toy arhz. Well btw u could experiment osx on it . One advice, go set ur virtual memory to 1.5x ur ram size permanently and not let windows manage the size as it would cause some overhead. Also try to have the virtual memory on another hdd if possible. If not possible at least on another partition other than the one windows is loaded on.
hmm ddr1 or ddr2? I rmb dd1 is not so cheap now
Adding RAM or changing CPU wouldn't help much. Not to forget the HDD RPM n onboard video still need to get a boast inorder to work better. So, best of all, get a new one and also, u will be having the new technology, rather than old technology.
Only Sony device mostly, haha!
Most of the time, it not abt the speed or how much ram it has, the bottleneck is in the HDD itself. One thing you can try is, get a portable USB drive, plug it in and set the scratchfiles over to that drive or a USB thumbdrive. It may helps in a little way.
U mean 2nd hdd or hdd where OS is on? If 2nd hdd, right click my computer, click manage then go to disk management. U can format from there
add more ram...its a lot of difference. I have 2 GB ram on mine, I can multitask, and I use engineering software that is more power and ram hungry than photo apps.
