Where is the model number on an Xe3 omnibook laptop/notebook?


Wow that's an old notebook. Normally if you look on the bottom of the laptop it will give you the model number. But all you need for yours is the fact that it is an Xe3 Omnibook.

It has 2 memory slots and will only hold a maxium of 1 GB of memory which is 512mb in each slot.

Here is where I got that info below.

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

Installing XP in a HP OmniBook XE3


Upgrades are probably limited on that machine except for a bigger hard drive.

512 should be enough.
