    Most of us have heard that Crucial memory is the best, but could investing in an older laptop instead of buying a new one be worth it? Absolutely! Added 1GB to an older laptop that used to perform like it was under water. Now it runs multiple multimedia apps while browsing the internet allowing the security software to quietly update itself and run scans without interruption of other programs. I'm so glad to have dealt with Crucial directly. I couldn't be happier! The online scanning tool erases any doubt, so you can be certain you're buying memory that's specific to your computer. [...]The online 'how to install' videos provided by Crucial clearly show you how to perform an upgrade, although in my case, locating the memory was a bit of a challenge. Keep in mind there are thousands of different models on the market. For some, It may take a little patients locating the memory panel. The rest is a cake walk. I will always purchase memory from Crucial.

    Is there a compatability issue?

    Replaced original ram with 2gb upgrade.
    Unsure if there may be a compatability issue. Have had several blue screen incidents since installing.
    Apart from that has definitely improved performance and speed

                  My laptop was running like a dog on 512 mb. I added crucial's recommended 1G of memory to my Acer Aspire and now it runs like a new laptop. Took only a couple of minutes to install (thanks to a youtube video I found online)and I was up an running in minutes. This was mt first attempt ever at upgrading computer components too.

                    Other sites may have improved slightly.
