Advice needed - revamping an old 10" vaio into a competitive netbook
I would like to revamp my old 10" Sony Vaio PCG-SRX99P laptop into a usable netbook. I rarely use it these days, so I'd like to turn it back into a nice road warrior.
(unfortunately I can't find specific specs anywhere)
-8-16GB Solid State HD
-New 4+ cell batter
I'm not very knowledgeable about hardware so I'm not certain how possible upgrading an old laptop like this is. It would be wonderful if I can make it semi-competitive with current $400 netbooks for much less than $400. One thing I really like about it is its PCMCIA slot - something today's netbooks lack
Any advice/suggestions/direction will be MUCH appreciated! Thanks!!
