        This is the second time I have ordered memory from Crucial for two different IBM ThinkPad laptops. The 1G memory sticks were economical,easy to install, and they work. End of story.

                      This memory really speeded up the laptop. Installing memory in a laptop was more of a challenge then I expected but the memory worked perfect once I got it in there. Thank you Micron.

                          i love everything about it epically where i had to insert it. On my ibm t43 there was a open memory slot on the back that was great because than i would have had to take the laptop apart.

                              Did just fine. works fine. I can tell the increase, but not as much as I though, but it is still a good increase. I am probably asking too much out of it though.
