          I was having real trouble with my laptop managing multiple windows and programs with 1 gig of RAM. I bought 2 2 Gig chips, and they took care of my problems completely.

              Product was perfectly described and perfect for the machine. Improved Vista Ultimate performance drastically over the 1.5GB pre-existing RAM as well as using the USB key for the Ready Boost.

              I would recommend Crucial again and again for their accurate lookup and excellent response.
