        I upgraded from the 512MB that came standard to the max of 2MB. I can really tell a difference in all my applications, even my gaming. Crucial selected the correct memory with both methods... glad I came here!

          Usually I do all of my A/V editing on my desktop but there are times when I need my laptop to fill in and so I added a 1GB stick. I have just completed editing 38GB of .avi on the laptop with no problems at all. Also my performance across my network to my photo/music library has very noticibly improved.

          I also really liked the online analyizer to make sure I ordered the correct RAM.
