Hi
Is anyone able to suggest somewhere in Auckland I can take my laptop (Acer Aspire 5570Z) to have the RAM upgraded from 1GB to 2GB?
I know I could probably do it myself, and I even had the back cover off, but I'm paranoid at breaking something, considering how the car went all those years ago after I pulled it apart.  (or perhaps its just being a blonde female.  Who knows)

Thanks in advance!

If you're a Westie, I can do this. Will PM you with a price.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

If you ring some computer dealers (ie. not Dick Smith) and get prices for the RAM you will require.  Then when they tell you ask if they will install it for free?  If they say no dont bother going there, it really is quite simply a job of pulling out the old and slipping in the new!

Thanks to Fraser (Coffeebaron) for upgrading the RAM in my laptop.  Such good service!
I'll be a much happier computer-user now!
