8. Gahhh ... this is bad news for our friend Grasswire ...

The article doesn't state whether the 'flash drive' based hard drive can be upgraded to larger capacity, but it seems like probably not. Likewise, the 4GB of RAM is quite possibly not expandable either. Then again, we don't know if the problems GW2 is having are memory-based, or storage-based, nor whether either can be internally upgraded, so ...

No matter what, though, an external drive of some kind is one upgrade that would be available ... but honestly, with a 32GB internal 'harddrive' ... esp. if that cannot be upgraded to a larger model ... this PC is almost hopelessly out of date, even just 2 years later. I feel like the money one spent on an external could likely be better used by saving to invest on a new lappie.

GW2 you might be better off trying to find a cheap laptop at Goodwill, a machine with at least a 512MB hard drive and 6GB of RAM. Then get someone to help you move your current install to the newer machine.
