    I really want to thank Crucial because I had the product delivered just after I gave the order three ago.

            The new memory allowed me to drag my old Thinkpad out of the trash and now my daughter has her first computer. Although the hard disc is not huge, at least the machine performs 3x faster now.
            Received very promptly thanks.
