I just got a dell e6500 for work and I'm looking at upgrading it. I noticed some slots, I know the wwan port is for a lte card, but can it be used for an ssd? Also seeing a fcn option is this useful to me at all? Aside those there is an umd card slot. I have no idea what the umd lot is for. Lastly the card has a smart card slot. What is it and can I use it? Sorry for so Many questions

You've got your hands on a Dell Latitude E6500 which is a business geared machine/laptop. You can upgrade the ram up to 8GB's of DDR2 ram but in this day and age I think you'll have more issues finding a match pair. Yes you will need two matching sticks or a kit to ensure you don't suffer from incompatibility issues.

You could also go with an SSD, you can remove the optical drive and replace it with an SSD caddy and populate it there with a 2.5" SSD or you can keep the optical drive and then remove the original HDD and have the SSD there.

These links should help:

IMHO, you're trying to spend on a laptop that has seen more than it should and should only have upgrades done to it if the parts are, em, handed down.

Could you share the laptop's SKU with us?

I mean this laptop is old. It's barely enough to browse the web of today and in all reality should just be left alone. At 10 years of age it's simply too old to really be usefull anymore and the money spent on upgrades will just be going to waste.
