      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a IBM ThinkPad T42 Series (Type 2373) System:

      I upgraded to quicken 2012 which required 1 GB of ram to operate. I thought I was going to have to buy a new computer but after some research I found that Crucial made it look easy to buy and install a memory chip. I had no issues installing the new chip and now enjoy quicker response time on my PC when running multiple applications.

                      Upgrading to 2 MBytes of memory is almost a must for Windows 7. Getting at the module under the keyboard wasn't too tough; I used a search engine to find directions. Snapped them in, and it booted right up!
