Let me begin by saying I mod and hack Android regularly but as far as computers....not so much. I have been looking around and I think what I want to do is build me a laptop from "barebones" so i can get more bang for my buck. I am looking into building a Dell Latitude D630 but I have never done this before but I learn quickly. I want 8GB of RAM a 500GB HDD and I want to be running somewhere at or north of 2Ghz. I will also be installing Ubuntu 14.04. I have looked on several places online and Answers are so scattered that it is hard to find the correct information. http/www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1654700/dell-latitude-d630-performance-upgrade.html says something about updating bios but I am not sure what all i would need to do to do that. If you can give me some help that would be very much appreciated and also if you would include links i would love that too.
