Dell 300m for BMW setup - upgrades necessary?
This is my first post! But, I've been reading like a good noob should.
I have an old Dell 300m which has a pentium M 1.4Ghz and 1 gig of memory. I'll be running xplite and RR. I'm running a partition that I'm planing on just cloning the hard drive to the laptop. I had a few questions before I start working on the hard bits.
Is a 1.4 pentium M going to cut it for decent start times?
I can upgrade the fan or run it faster and install a 2.0 for fairly cheap or am I better off spending my cash elsewhere?
In terms of the case, it is pretty sweet how thin it is, it'll fit under my passenger seat (i have a bmw 325iT) but...
should i take out the internals and install in a new case? or should i leave it and ditch the screen and keyboard?
The computer has an external CD drive which is fine since I won't be using it once it's in.
I'm going to get the thing running first and get the bios stripped down and see how fast the boot is (or how slow it is).
