Here is current configuration of my laptop ordered from US to India.
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-720QM Quad Core processor (1.6GHz, 6MB L3 Cache)
with Turbo Boost up to 2.8 GHz
4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
320GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 320M - For i7 Processors
I am not able to run virtual machines for my advanced computing studies for example VMs from cloudera for hadoop samples.
I want to upgrade my laptop to good current configuration. Possibly as follows
RAM at least 8GB
Processor : latest i7 or one level below to save cost
Please suggest what is compatible and how much it may cost.
