            I thought original 1 GB memory was "good enough". After frustration with slow speed I ordered max 4 GB memory - easy to install even for me (+ I air cleaned the fan and cooling grids) Now I notice the improved performance. [...]

              Very easy to install and lots of information about the ram and how to install it. The program to determine the corredt ram is a neat way to confirm your getting the right ram because there are so many choices out there, and they don't all work.
