    The only thing you can really do to upgrade a laptop is to put more RAM memory in it-find out what kind of RAM is in it now and see how much another stick of it would cost-then its up to you if its worth it or not.

    Along with upgrading ram try to find a higher RPM hard drive with alil more cache, that'll help out the speed also.
