I recently upgraded my Thinkpad from 256 megs to 1 G of RAM, and let me tell you, the difference in speed was VERY noticeable. I like to open up a bunch of applications, and the speed at which my pc would access them was almost exponentially increased !
I would highly, HIGHLY recommend surfing www.crucial.com for your memory chips. Mine have been working flawlessly so far !
Also, if you can afford it, MAX OUT your RAM, and you'll never regret it.
If my specs for my hp zv5340us are as follows, what will I need to do the upgrade on my ram?
512MB DDR SDRAM (2 x 256MB) at 333MHz
1280MB DDR SDRAM (1 x 256MB, 1 x 1024MB)
I am thinking of doing it myself but I just wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions.
