How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

      Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Pavilion a6200n System:

      I used this memory to replace memory that had "broken" in a fairly new machine (couple of years old). Crucial completed my order very quickly and shipped out the memory within a day of completing the order.
