    Adding RAM ?


    I received a HP 20-b014 all in one PC as a gift... It's a nice looking, space saving machine BUT it only has a 1.4 ghz processor. It also has 4gbs RAM, running Windows 8 (64 bit). My question is, will adding more ram help as far as watching videos online? Not concerned with gaming at all. Just can't handle the lagging when I'm trying to watch videos.

    As far watching Video online, a lot of RAM will not make that much difference but rather it's your internet speed and depends on how fast is the host server, if there are a lot of people accessing the the server, it will slow down the video streaming and cause lagging.
