Question about Cell Phones
I have got a old Compaq Armada 1590DT Laptop.
It has 80 MB Memory (EDO-RAM, i think)
1.) Its possible to upgrade the memory?
2.) Its possible to upgrade the CPU?
The Chipset: OPTi 82C701 FireStar+
The CPU: Intel Pentium MMX, 166MHz
Thank you for Your Help
I currently have three Armada's. I put XP on one - ran like kukua until I upped the memory. I think I put in a gig or 2. I found mine at www.4allmemory.com though this is not the only place in the world to get it. I put a new battery in the same computer. So, now I'm invested about $250.00 over the original investment. Frankly, I am disappointed when comparing the Armada to my new Acer Aspire 1. Pound for pound, the Acer is the better investment.
Yet... If you can live with W98, Second Ed. (which is really a better option for this particular computer), the Armada will travel, communicate, browse, e-mail, write notes and letters with the best of them. It is also very classy!
I have not had the machine open. I seem to recall that the processor can be changed ... but to what point? You will not get to anything current except for the cost! I also changed the keyboard on the Armada I use from time to time. I originally had 6 Armada's.
You may want to visit www.pcpitstop.com and have your Armada scanned for free. They will have suggestions for upgradability and they will recommend sources for you to consider.
I hope my experience is of come value to you as you contemplate your upgrade.
