                Windows XP laptop with 512Mb of main memory was paging itself to death. Tripling the memory on this five years old computer has probably added at least another year or two to its usefule life - all for about twenty bucks.

                    [...] I downloaded Dell's user manual on how to find and install the memory in the B-120 laptop. For less than [$], I have a "new" fast operating machine. I've dealt with other electronic companies for upgrades, but Crucial always offers the best product.
