    Here are my specifications:

    17.3" Acer Aspire 7552G:

    Processor:

    AMD Phenom II x4 N930 (2.0GHz)
    Graphics Card:

    ATI Radeon Mobility 5650 1GB RAM
    RAM (3 Available slots):

    4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1066 PC3-8500 Kingston Memory

    Would adding more RAM allow for any speed increases do you think?

    I purchased a sort similar Acer Aspire one for my daughter for X-mas (at a sale a few weeks ago from target for $197).

    It came with 2gb of mem and seemed decent at that. But I purchased a 4gb Mushkin chip for it and it seems like a nice zippy little 11.6 inch netbook. For these less expensive laptops, memory can be a good help. I guess it depends on the CPU too.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I think I'm just going to buy some memory.

    would another 2GB be sufficient, or would 4GB be better? If anyone knows?

    You can uninstall the bloatware acer put on it or keep it from loading on startup.

    Yeah, I did that a while ago when I re-installed windows.

    What about towards gaming?

    Download Ccleaner ( Redirecting... ) run it and control what programs starts every time you turn on your laptop......registry cleanind...etc....adding ram will speed it up but the first option is free...

    Well most laptops aren't the greatest gaming systems but most games take a lot of memory and video cards with a lot of dedicated memory to run smooth. A fast multi core processor doesn't hurt either.

    You could strap it to a Delta V rocket. It would go somewhere in the neighborhood of 22,000mph after a few moments.

    . Sorry, couldn't resist.

    More RAM, give that SOB 6 to 8GB (test it of course), then put Linux on it, now that is speed that never wears out or slows down overtime. Trust me, I use it all the time.

    For gaming, there are some sick linux games, if it's going to mostly be used for school/college/university/work or web browsing, skype, etc., you won't need the games, it does come with LibreOffice and skype can also be installed. Media plays right out of the box too. Linux of choice: Mint 11 (gnome 2.33.x), or Mint 12 (Gnome 3). Ubuntu only if you're familar with it.

    Just thought I should add those additions.
