Hard to answer that question without understanding your goal. Is there some need you have today that the machine doesn't meet as it's configured today?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Not much I'm afraid. The ram is basically maxed out. The only other thing that can be upgraded is the HD. You could install a larger HD...or an SSD.

Nothing else is upgradeable.

I assume you're looking to upgrade to the latest version of OS X that you can on that MacBook Pro? If so, that would be OS X 10.7, Lion. Your machine doesn't meet the hardware requirements for Mountain Lion.
