My awesome little netbook is the MSI Wind U100. It comes with 1GB of RAM installed, and supports up to 2GB of RAM and has a little slot for the right size chip (in this case, I needed a 1GB DDR2-5300 SODIMM) I just removed the battery, unscrewed the back, popped it off, popped in the RAM, screwed the back on, replaced the battery, and turned it on. I didn’t have to worry about shock too much: I live in a place with 80%-90% humidity every day. I grounded myself off a light switch screw, then got to work.
There is a notable decrease in
- Boot time from a shutdown
- Boot time from hibernation
- Program load time
- Lag when I have a lot of tags open
Sweetness! A really good deal, and really easy too.
