            I raised the memory on an HP NC6220 from 1 gig to 2 gig. It improved loading performance a bit as I'm running Windows 7. It was a cheap improvement and will keep it going for a bit of surfing and email and the machine travels well. . . bottom line is that I need a new machine!

                    I used Crucial Memory to upgrade two laptops. One is for World of Warcraft. My son always had lag in the major cities with 1 Gig, and upgrading it to 2 gigs makes it quite playable. Best bang for the buck. I also upgraded my Linux/Apache/MySQL web server laptop of the same model to 2 gigs of RAM and I've noticed marked improvements in performance with Linux as well. I have used and will continue to use Crucial for my upgrades. I hate upgrading and not having something work quite right. That's why I go for what works. Thanks guys.

                      Couldn't be any easier.

                        Using the website, ensures you will not order a product that will not work in your device.

                        This is the only site I go to for memory needs.

                          This low cost upgrade gave new life to an aging laptop that I use for graphics, video and Microsoft Office applications.

                          I am always multi-tasking between a constant stream of email recieved and sent, and powerpoint and Adobe Photoshop work.

                          The inexpensive doubling of RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB, resulted in a quantum leap improvement in performance. Windows XP Pro really flies with 2 GB RAM.
