        This is the RAM chip Crucial recommended to upgrade my old Lenovo computer. It works perfectly now--much faster, and I was able to put off buying a new laptop because of the upgrade. Very pleased with the recommendation!

              my laptop was starting to run a little slow with all the automatic upgrades to software that occur on a regular basis. I only had 256 MB Ram and upgraded to the maximum of 2GB and things load fast and really fly. I had no installation problems. Online info. on how to change it out was perfect. I highly recommend this product and seller!!!

                      I usually have three email programs running, multiple browsers, explorer and mozilla. Then a couple of .pdf's, excel spreadsheets and word. Now with the upgrade it doesn't slow down at all....gotta love it. I'll give it one more year and it's old to begin with.
