In some access panel on the bottom of the machine but for most of us this should result in less than a 2 per cent change in any performance. Why do this?

because this memory's laptop was shared with graphic memory so it won't get pure 4Gb otherwise it's only 2.25gb and that would be use when i open lot of program then it could be little bit slow...
