      The 2GB memory was very easy to install. At first the computer did not display the increased capacity but it showed 2GB after Bios refreshing. The package did not come with an instruction but it was easy enough to guess.

        Comments about Crucial 2GB Upgrade for a ASUS Eee PC S101 System:

        The ASUS (S101) runs great with it's 2G upgrade. I haven't run into a problem delays due to cache memory. The constant 500MB resident memory usage in XP has 3X the room to grow (up to 2G) that it previously had with 1G. For my useage memory bottlenecks are non existent.
        Found the Crucial site easy to navigate and was confident that the memory I was ordering would work in my ASUS.
