    You can easily upgrade the Ram.

    Mine came with 4 gigs of RAM. Bought another 8 and easily upgradet it to 12. Upgrade it to 14 gigs still should be easy but if you want 16, you have to desmount the whole laptop because one of the slots is at the other side of the mainboard. Unless yours comes already comes with 8 gigs, the internal slot will be occupied with 4, allowing you to easily upgrade to 16 gigs.

    Make sure the drives are in IDE mode in BIOS. The update will not work in AHCI mode.

    @jelski you can copy the recovery partition with a utility like gparted (or dd if you're comfortable with the command line) to a file called something like recovery.img or straight onto a usb stick/disk. A linux livecd like ubuntu is all that you'd need.

    There's a guide here but I'm not sure you need to go through all of this: http://forum.notebookreview.com/asu...recovery-partition-recover-another-drive.html
