    Upgrade laptop from 256MB RAM to 512MB RAM?

    Would it be worth it for my mom to throw down 40 bucks for a 512 stick of ram for her laptop or should she not even bother- or should she go for a gig? (I doubt I'll be able to convince her though, I'm mostly going for the 512)

    Yes, if she wants a faster laptop, and feels the need to invest in it.

    Yes...most laptops will come with 2 slots with 1 used for the 256. Add the 512 to what you already have and her machine will run so much more efficiently...like adding Octane to your cars gas tank!!

    Unfortunately, this POS only has one SODIMM slot.

    Well, if she wont splurge for the 1 GB then just use the 512 and she will see a good difference in the way that it runs. Try to get her to buy the 1 GB. What Brand and model is the lappy?

    Some laptops have a 2nd slot hidden under the keyboard.

    What OS is she running?
