                Added, at lowest cost, needed memory.

                Added memory allowed faster boot and allowed applications to run more smoothly.

                      My son had purchased memory for my husband's computer from another company. Although it said it was compatible, it was not. I went online to crucial, had them check his computer, and tell me what to order. I ordered it, got it in just a few days, and installed it with no problems. Could not have been easier! PLUS, crucial's memory was about [$] cheaper!
