    Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5891 System:

    Product was used to max the RAM capacity in a 3 year old Toshiba laptop. Installation took 5 minutes, the laptop recognized the RAM immediately, and the overall performance has been enhanced - a bit faster, smoother, and noticeably less struggle with mulitple apps. Of course, with a 32-bit Windows system, only about 3GB of the 4GB is available on the system (see Crucial info on RAM). It's not great, but it's still much better than the prior stock RAM. Installing known reliable RAM at a fair price will extend the life of an aging laptop like mine.
