Cheap RAM

I went out this afternoon to get some RAM for my dad's painfully slow Vista running notebook. The original plan was to buy 512Mb and hope that it won't cost too much.

I find out that 1Gb of notebook DDR2 RAM is a mere RM125!

So now the notebook has 1.5Gb of RAM and runs Vista quite nicely, even on batteries.

The lesson here is not to buy RAM from Dell. Buy it from a shop instead. It's literally half price.

I'm in the process of moving over some of my D&D stuff over to the notebook. My dad doesn't use it much so I might as well use it for something. At least it's not sitting in a cupboard anymore.

And it's not painfully slow anymore. That's a nice thing.
