Upgrading a Toshiba A120 laptop

Is it worth upgrading... [email protected] processor 512meg Ram 74.5 Gig Hard drive Win 7 32bit OS installed. The battery is duff but can get one from E Bay at about £12.00 and upgrade ram to 2gig for about £25.00. The processor may be the stumbling block, so would it be worth the trouble???? Any advice would be appreciated. The laptop is about 10 to 12 years old!!!!!

Good enough for basic school work, Facebook and watching movies, but whatever you do it will feel slow by today's standards.

Worth spending £50 but no more. I would not put a lot of faith in a £12 battery

Yes, as I said and you confirm, its 10 to 12 years old. Don't think I will bother. Might just upgrade the ram to see how fast it could perform. Ta anyway chaps.

Old RAM can be quite expensive probably not worth the cost.

Yes. I think I will not proceed on it. Thanks all for the advice. AB68
