      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Gateway NX560X System:

      My laptop started with the default 512mb and I recently bought 2gigs from Crucial. Removing the old ram and installing the new ones was about as easy as switching out a dead light bulb in your cars turn signal. A few screws and it's done.

      I had problems with waiting for multiple apps to reload and now they are gone. It is like having a desktop instead of a laptop.

      Plus, I can now play iTunes while I work without any hiccups.
