              I work 8 hours a day on a company laptop mostly using outlook, excel, word, internet, etc. My machine was beginning to bog down periodically so my boss approved maxing out the ram. I went from 1 gig to 4 gig for only [$]!! Awesome. The prouduct works as promised and the online scanner tool for determining the product you need worked great. Very easy and painless.
