It does have an external expresscard slot  but that would essentially turn the system into a glorified desktop - these don't work with the internal monitor, and they cost more than the entire system is worth by several times over.

RE: My son just got an Inspiron E1505 and I'm looking to upgrade it a bit and need a clue.

just in case anyone happens upon this old thread  looking to upgrade - i want to state the fact that many dell E1505's will and have been able to..- run 64 bit OS on Windows 7

if the e1505 has a core2-Duo cpu  it is 64 bit capable .. i have an E1505 and I have been running Windows 7 64 bit on it for 5 years !!    so saying an e1505 will only run 32 bit Os is plain wrong

(..however if the cpu is a regular 'core duo' - that is 32 bit -and wont work .it must be a Core2-duo!

Core Duo = 32 bit.

Core 2 Duo = 64 bit.

T2300, T2400, T2500, T2600, T2050, T2060, T2250 are all Core Duo's, 32 bit.



T5550, T5560, T7200, T7400, T7600, T7600G are all Core 2 Duo's, 64 bit.

Easy way to memorize. If your Core (2) Duo has 4 MB L2-cache then it is 64 bit,

T5200 is a core2duo with 2 MB cache and runs fine with 64 bit windows. Currently running one inspiron 6400 with T5200 and 4 GB ram and X1400 and Windows 10 64 bit. Its a bit slower but runs fine without any issue.

Actually... This laptop is upgradeable to 4 GB of ram.. I currently have 3GB in my Dell Inspiron E1505, my processor is only a intel core duo but i wanna upgrade it to a core 2 duo
