      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Sony VAIO VGN-N320E/B System:

      My laptop was lagging and slow. I have an older Vaio (about 4 years old) and it was starting to show its age. I figured it was time to upgrade my laptop for about $600 or buy some RAM for [$]. Crucial got the biz with [$] and my laptop is running the same way it did before I bought all the software that bogged it down the first time. I love it now and I can't wait to get on the computer because my experience is much better now. I also recommended Crucial.com to my workplace and now we all bumped up our RAM.

            Ease of installation was probably the second best thing about these - the first being the increased performance. When you need to be sure of the product - I'd always make Crucial my first option.
