2. Can you expand the RAM memory of your laptop?
Programs are getting increasingly heavy, so if you've got a laptop that's been around for a few years, chances are the RAM memory isn't up to the way you use it anymore. That's why it's a good idea to choose a laptop with expandable memory. For most laptops, expanding the memory is easy, which allows you to make your laptop future proof. We state whether the RAM is expandable in the specifications of each laptop.
