I had always been of the impression that 1GB of RAM was plenty for my purposes. I do multi-task on my computer, but not to any crazy degree.
NCIX had a sale on 1GB DDR-667 SODIMM RAM – $65!!! That’s more than half off! I jumped on the gun and got two.
Needless to say, the performance speaks for itself. Things open faster, close faster, and my computer just never pages anything. Needless to say – I love it. I’ve also read that there is an even more significant performance boost between 1GB and 2GB when running Vista. 🙂
