That's right, I bought a new, 1gig stick of memory for my laptop on Friday and installed it Saturday. Now, instead of 512mb, I have 1.2gb of RAM. This is a very good thing! My laptop is very happy with this upgrade.
I'd been shopping for more memory for a few weeks and it seemed that just about everywhere it was $130 to $145. I happened into Staples on Friday. There it was $130 but they had a $30 rebate attached!
So I bought it. Call it an anniversary present to Wasted Electrons I suppose. And another day- I think I'll buy a matching stick and have 2gig on my 'puter!
