I'm not very savvy with computers and while I have tried to find any information regarding if I can upgrade my Laptop even a little bit, I have been unsuccessful. Like the title says, I have an M14x r2 and I seek to upgrade it in any way that I can, I'm not interested in the new Alienware laptops, mainly because of the design.
My specs are:
Processor: i5 -3210m 2.50ghz
GPU: Nvidia Geforce gt 650M
Memory: 6 GB DDR3
Hard Drive: 500 GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive

Any information regarding if I can upgrade anything or not would be very helpful! Thank You

Upgrade the ram, go with 2 x 8gb sticks and swap the hard drive with an SSD. You'll see some improvement for sure.

Yeah that's about all you can do. If you want to keep your storage space you can get an mSata SSD (128 or 256gb) and keep the 500gb HDD in there as well.

I was anti the new design too until I got one.

you cant... You should upgrade Buy the RAM aftermarket and install it yourself - it's super cheap and easy to install. Other than that, seems pretty good
