I guess this is the polar opposite of seeing a sale with a price you know must be a mistake because its to low. What if the shoe is on the other foot though. Had a laugh when I seen this come through today. Be quick guys there are only 30 left.

"RAM is still the single most cost effective and easy thing to upgrade on your laptop."

 

 

 

Easy - yes. Cost-effective? I'd have thought SSD would be the winner there these days.

Took a laptop from 8 to 16 gigs and saw stuff all difference.

Perhaps if it was going from 2 to 4 then there would be some impact, but adding an 8 gig stick wont do much for the average laptop.

I recently went form 2 to 6gb on an old C2D desktop and its a completely different beast, that said i was moving a large number of mp3 & mpg files from one folder to another folder on same HDD and was surprised how it struggled was using anywhere between 20~40% of CPU & ram resources while HDD was sitting at 100%, I'm thinking a SSD would have made a huge difference in that situation?

Just upgraded a laptop from 4 to 12gb of memory and it's made a world of difference, such a dream to use now. Thankfully I got a slightly better deal than the one posted by OP.

(as a side note, I had to buy a laptop that required the keyboard and than mothorboard to be removed to access the memory slots ofcourse...).
