            I can now run many open web pages and programs. Including Video's and Music downloads and streaming while working on other projects. Before with only 2gig ram I was taxing the cpu and paging files. This laptop is 3 yrs old W/xp sp3.
            With a celron 2.3ghz processor. It has been a work horse for home service though.
            I cant believe I didnt update the ram sooner. I have used Crucial in the past. That is why I went back for this laptop. Results have been excelent performance, both times.
