Hard drive / SDRAM ratio?

by Vspek1XV / August 30, 2007 6:45 AM PDT

I purchased an HP Pavilion a6110n which has 2.0GB of DDR2 SDRAM, and 320GB 7200-rpmSATA hard drive. I called HP support on another issue, and was told I would have problems with my new pavillion because the Hard drive/SDRAM ratio was incorrect. It should be 1.0GB of SDRAM to every 100GB +/- of hard drive. IS THIS TRUE? Should I return the Pavillion I have for something with a better ratio?

ridiculous remark. Absolute nonsense. Consider complaining with the American management of HP fot getting such an absurd advice from - probably - an incapable and outsourced helpdesk.

After telling me I would have problems, the overseas "tech" then put an HP together with the proper configuration, which I could purchase and have in no more than 10 days.

"As you add more disk space you should extend your warranty at the rate of 1 month per GB."

-> Frankly I tend to drop the phone when I hear or read such since I'm... ROTFL.
