|Date:||Thu, 23 Apr 2020|
Hi all ;
I'm not a techie - be gentle .. :-)
I'm considering a ram upgrade for my trusty old T500.
core 2 duo P8400 @ 2.26 ghz
Presently Win 8.1 Pro < originally Vista > with 2 + 1 ram.
I recently installed a SSD which worked great for improving
start-up and shut-down - but I'm wondering if I can expect
any more performance improvement with 4 + 2 ram ?
or 4 + 4 ? < maximum >
I've read that it should be 2Rx8 not 1Rx8 < ? >
Not wanting to spend a lot of money - but I really like this
computer - it's perfect for my needs.
Any suggestions ?
The new ram that I see does not mention 2Rx8 or 1Rx8
- the used ram has it shown on the sticker photos ..
Here's what I'm thinking of trying :
Used 4 gig PC3 laptop sticks seem a bit rare in my area
and run ~ $ 30.
