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.
It’s time. Upgrade your RAM.
