Do Dell Vostro 2520 Laptops support RAM upgrades and/or Processor Upgrades? Please explain.

It's been 3 years with Vostro 2529 and I'm extremely satisfied with performance. I just wabt to upgrade the CPU and/or RAM, to continue using for few more years. 

Please explain if possible, how and if not, why.

Desktops can be upgraded but it is not easy or cost effective on laptops even if it were possible. Save the money for a new computer. Ram can be upgraded to 8GB. So if you already have 8 gb you are at the max. Read this review for the difficulty of upgrading this model--

The system supports a couple of second generation i3 and i5 CPUs - whether you can upgrade depends on what you now have.

The RAM is 8G max, 2X4.  

Upgradeability of either is very limited - you can't go beyond the second generation CPU series, and the RAM is limted to DD3 as shipped.
