So I'm about to buy this new laptop:

http://www.dell.com/ca/p/inspiron-14-3451-laptop/pd?oc=ni143451_bt_s002e&model_id=inspiron-14-3451-laptop

to replace my current 11'' hp stream. If possible and if anybody did it can you show me what it looks inside it's tummy? I'd like to check if hard drive/ram is upgradable. Cuz 5400 RPM is slow and I'd like to put in 8gb ram if possibru. Also if you have made any kind of video demonstrating it's performance with games or multi-tasking that'd be great! :D

Thanks.

Pentium N3540 with 4 gig of RAM won't do very well with multiple programs open, and definitely not games. You can play older games and non-demanding games on it, but nothing close to say GTA V or even Skyrim or WOW.

You can look up what it can be upgraded with here http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Dell/inspiron-14-%283451%29 looks like a 4 gig max RAM amount but you can swap out the hard drive.

I see.... but what if the multi-tasking I'm talking about is like opening multiple google chrome tabs. around 10, and having skype open while a video is playing. I know rendering videos will take forever and stuff like that because I mean, duh it's intel pentium. Also I'd like to play 1080p videos. Also I'm not gonna be gaming on the laptop because I only play on the wii u. Also if you know what intel graphics is in there I'd appreciate that.

You did ask for what kind of performance it gets in games -> "demonstrating it's performance with games or multi-tasking". It will handle running a few programs fine and will play HD video, but with 4 gig max RAM, it will slow down quite a bit and you may see freezing when doing several things. As far as the graphics, just look up the specs on Dell's website or look up the CPU model.
