A few days ago I posted that HP had purchased Palm, leading me to believe that they saw a future in the Palm Pre phone giving competition to the iPhone. Indeed, the Pre does perform well. It even multi-tasks out of the box.
But the link above helps identify HP’s motives in buying Palm.
It will be interesting to see how Palm’s WebOS works on a slate PC.
I’ve been running a Dell laptop with 1GB of RAM since Vista first arrived. The extra money for the extra GB (this laptop maxes out at 2GB) was more than this Scotsman could take.
But RAM prices have dropped lots. I grabbed the scanner at www.crucial.com and picked up two 1GB chips online for a couple pennies under $24 — delivered. Man — if I knew how it would help performance, I may have done it when RAM was $75 for 2GB.
Outlook, QuickVerse, even FireFox load more quickly.
