2 of that 3:

RAM and hard disk

That's about it for most laptops.

Unless it is an old one, it is likely to be tightly packed with the best bundle for the price.

It is easy to add peripherals via USB, though.

oh ok because i have a intel gma 900 and every one is saying its rubbish but its says on the intel website it can run half life 2 so i was wondering if i can upgrade that but it msut be fearley good

I'm afraid I have to agree with the others. The only things you can possibly upgrade are the RAM and perhaps a bigger hard drive.
If your laptop can play half life 2, and I have no way of saying whether this is correct or not ,then I would suggest your laptop isn't bad at all.
Does it really matter what others think if the laptop does all you ask of it?

But then again it is possible to upgrade a laptops cpu. But this is not something you should do unless you know what your doing. I bought a new cpu for my famous dell latitude lol andmy brother is an ict technician and he installed it for me :-)
