Re: Laptop Ram?



In my experience the effect RAM has is software dependant but generally
increasing the size of you RAM will do much more to speed up you computer
than increasing the CPU speed. The slowest process is usually accessing or
storing information on your hard drive(s) and so the less this has to be
done, the faster everything goes.

My computer (I'm using now - a desk top) has 128 MB RAM and my wife's
computer has 384 MB RAM and the difference is quite noticable, especially
when manipulating graphics etc.
