speed a laptop besides RAM???

I still have my "old" laptop from 1999 (manufactured in June/July '99 and bought new off the radio shack backstock in Dec "99) This  Compaq Presario 1272 machine runs at 366 MHz with 32 MB of RAM ...that I plan to max out soon to 160 MB RAM . This machine seems so slow...I have played with 1 GHz laptops recently and they fly!

Besides maxing out the RAM, is there any easy way to get more speed?

Nope.  I've never seen a laptop with an upgradable CPU.  I'm not saying it's impossible, just impractical.

Using hardware, it is quite impractical.  Of course, you can optimize your hard disk by defragging, deleting temp files, and other methods and recognize a slight speed gain.  Follow some of the links here - http://www.windows-help.net/windows98/all-tips.shtml

Thanks guys. I was afraid of that.

By the way, I think PC Club has a laptop with a desktop P3 but I don't know how it is attached to the laptop's motherboard and if adding a faster P3 would overheat the machine. My laptop's K6-2 is a tape design permanently affixed to the motherboard.
