Thanx to all guys for their input
The CPU is unfortunately the bottleneck, as i am most of the times on a 60-70% usage that fluctuates depending on what i do, slowing down the laptop and giving me a headache. Besides, i can get the CPU for almost 50% off, so it would be a good investment for the future as i don't really change laptops that often.
Pinto thanx for the welcome; yep it is Gothenburg. Also thanx for the heads up on my misplaced FS forum thread, must have been tired at the time and overlooked it. Oh well, there go my chances of getting a decent answer over there.
I will look into all info here and proceed with caution.
