      Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Toshiba Satellite X205 Series System:

      [*]' Vista and its inherently resource hungry nature, and 2) a Toshiba laptop with all of its proprietary drivers make my rig (X205-S7483) limit my choices regarding performance. Therefore, maxing out my RAM is one of the few options I have. Wish it would've been a bit better of a boost, but it does the trick. Crucial is the best memory on the market IMHO.
