DarkVirusI'll probably do it anyways but my forum is way underused. Anyone have any opinions on this laptop.

I bought 512MB for my laptop for about $150cdn, which included installation.

Is installing stuff in a laptop significantly harder than in a desktop computer?  I've never had a laptop to toy with, but now that I think of it, the smaller sizes seem like they might make upgrading difficult.

I think it's pretty much the same, except that on mine (and maybe other, I don't know) the bottom counts as a heatsync, so if it's not screwed on tight enough it'll overhead and explode.

I bought one, too, and I make my payments every month for 15 more months Smiley

One time I walked through a park, and suddenly I saw something shiny - two 10 NIS coins were lying on the ground, under a tree (there was nobody else around). Maybe it does?
