Get a new laptop.

EDIT: Also get audacity. Its a good free recording program
a mic
a mixer

But i dont know what you could do to your laptop. RAM wont do that much realy.

Just shove a 1 gig stick of ram in, reinstall windows, and giver hell. Don't see any reason why it wouldn't work just fine. I mean people did record before the days of 5Ghz processors did they not?

Unless you're overclocking like mad, they don't make 5GHz processors. Dual core doesn't count.

EDIT: Use Adobe Audition 2.0
It doesn't bog down your computer like 3.0, it's better than cool edit pro, and it's easy enough to.. acquire.

Well upgrading specs [such as RAM and processor etc] is never a bad idea, especially if you are going to use an editing program such as Cubase which uses a lot of resources. An external sound card makes for much better recording because the built-in one's are usually generic and not particularly designed for good quality recording.

I used my laptop mic and audacity and made some VERY nice recordings... I sent in my laptop though and they sent me out a new one and the mic sounds like **** :-( I also have a UX1 and its not that bad except you cant get a good clean tone or plug in your electric acoustic and make it sound decent at all. Perhaps just download audacity and use your UX1 then go buy a nice mic to plug into the UX1, although I have heard this doesn't work great due to the UX1's lack of phantom power or something.
