Congrats to David N. of Cary, N.C., for winning a Fonesalesman QiStone+ wireless charger in last week's giveaway. This week's prize is definitely one to remember.

Crucial

We've got a 16GB memory boost from Crucial, a global brand of Micron Technology that manufactures solid-state drives and system memory upgrades. Adding more memory to your computer is one of the fastest ways to boost its performance.

You can use Crucial's free system scanner to determine your system's specs, and Crucial will ship 16GB (two 8GB sticks) of laptop or desktop DDR3 system memory to you. There's even a brief video tutorial walking you through the installation.
