I'm looking at upgrading the memory in my wife's laptop but need help understanding what I need to buy. (Yeah, I'm a computer guy, but my gig is software, not hardware.)
Her computer: Toshiba M30 model #PSM33C-YSJ00E http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.gr...t=2373#spectop
Memory specs from that link above:
Standard Memory: 512MB PC2700DDR (512MB x 1)
Maximum Memory: 2048MB (1024MBx2)
Expansion Modules: 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB PC2700DDR SODIMM modules
My wife's machine has just the 512MB that came with the computer.
While wandering about Future Shop today, asking their half-trained monkeys to give me a price quote on another 512 megs, a sage customer with an equally sour look on his face suggested I go to NCIX for a better price. Probably a smart idea, I thought.
So can someone point me to what I need on the NCIX website? http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...minorcatid=105
I know a lot of these shops have less than friendly customer service so I'd like to go in know exactly what I want, and hey, I'm only pricing things out right now, so the website should be enough for that. Can ya help me?
NOW, will this extra half-gig make much of a difference? Is it overkill for WinXP home edition running your regular assortment of MS Office apps and IE? I'm just thinking (hoping!) that memory is cheap and it will make at least some difference.
