    Comments about Crucial 2GB Upgrade for a Dell Inspiron 1720 System:

    This is the first time I've upgraded memory on a laptop and, with help from videos on the Net, found it suprisingly easy and straightforward.

    On the good side, upgrading from 2GB to 3GB RAM has eased the memory load when using Vista but I don't think it's made that much difference to overall performance.
