Okay, so my laptop is kinda crap, but I don't use it for much other than checking email and watching videos. Would you guys recommend I upgrade the ram or just buy a new one?

Specs:
Compaq Presario CQ57 64-bit
OS: Windows 10 Home
CPU: AMD C-50 Processor, 1ghz
GPU: AMD Radeon 6250 graphics card
RAM: 2 gb DDR3

upgrading your RAM helps if you have a lot of applications and/or tabs open at the same time.
You can hibernate unused open tabs like in e.g. Chrome to save memory - chrome://flags

But you get the best speed improvement if you change your HDD and switch to a SSD.
