Random Access Memory - It relates to how many things device can process at once. For example, playing music, downloading files, while playing World of Warcraft. The more RAM you have, the less hiccups you should encounter. Higher RAM should provide you with the ability to run multiple programs at the same time.

I know for a fact it can handle Minecraft. I played L4D2 on mine on lowest settings. But do not expect it to be a big time gaming netbook. I'm just lucky this intel hd graphics card can handle games at all! Sims 3, most likely on the lower settings.

This model should play Minecraft reasonably well, but will not play the Sims 3 well at all, even on the lowest video settings.

Question

How long is the battery life?

Most netbooks are about 8-9 hours of battery life. Is this laptop the same. One review said it's great from San Fran to NYC, and another says it's so so - 2 1/2 - 3 hours. 3 Hours would be pretty bad for a netbook. I'd be fine with 5-6 hours for the increase in power.

Also, does it run really hot compared to other netbooks?

lower-grade netbooks run 8-9 hours if you're taking notes in class, surfing the web intermittently, working on things in microwosft office, etc. Doing the same on this netbook, it will last 4-5 hours, maybe 6. Now watching HD video or playing games on it, it would last around 2 and 1/2 to 3 and 1/2 hours.

Yes, it is upgradeable to 8 gigs of ram. Best way to know is to visit crucial memory's website. They have a free computer scan that will automatically tell you how much your system can be upgraded.

Based on it's ability to run Left 4 Dead 2 on mine on lowest settings, I would say it could handle Wizard. Might have to slightly set video settings lower though.
