            Comments about Crucial 2GB Upgrade for a ASUS Eee PC 901 System:

            I'm running Linux (Fluppy 13) on Asus EEE PC 901. It's been slow to boot and with 5 necessary programs running it's been painfully sluggish. (LibreOffice, FireFox, Sundbird & Wine running TheBat! email program). Now it boots/shuts down much faster, less reboots due to not recognizing linux dial-up modem if not plugged in at boot etc. Sorry can't give percentage speed increase but it's a vast improvement in all aspects. Have had no issues with standby etc. The tutorial provided by Crucial re: installation plus one other (youtube/littleprettyboy81) gave me all the info I needed to upgrade easily/successfully... I'm no tech. Really wish I'd done this the minute I bought the 901 but I'd had to use it in this manner seldom until recently and it became too painful. I was hesitant as many report no speed/performance increase with memory upgrade but if running a lightweight Linux version and get a perfectly matched module it's soooo much better. I chose this module instead of guessing/hoping because Crucial guarantees it's compatible... between that and the video instructions it wasn't a difficult decision, only wish I'd done it sooner.

              upgraded ram on an ASUS eeePC901 from 1-gb to try to ease the congestion using windows-home with multiple screens/files open. Installation no problem.

              I bought a Lenovo ideapad off of craigslist for an upcoming trip. Wanted to lighten my load but the computer didn't have enough ram. Found this site on Google and couldn't believe how easy it was to find compatible ram to match my computer.
              Had the ram delivered and installed within a week.
              Great Website and service.
              Thanks Crucial.

                  Having 2 Gb on your asus eee 901 it's always better than having just 1 Gb. Unfortunately i'm using my 901 as a desktop computer and it can't handle all the stuff it's going on. So I think it's good idea to add more RAM, but if you need it as a desktop (open a lots of tabs on firefox, playing flash video like yourtube and so) the best is buying a faster computer. Atom aren't good for so intensive tasks.
