True, but we are running out of upgrade options for this laptop. i think the thread has grown into a "what can you upgrade on a crappy laptop" thread.so he doesn't need a fast disk.
More RAM will make a tremendous difference. Tosiba doesn't do it because that lets them sell the computer for cheaper or make more money selling it for the same price. 256MB RAM is the bare minimum to run WIndows XP; when you start having anti-virus and a firewall, it gets slow as hell.My dad is not convince that more RAM will make much of a difference because he said that if it costs less than than $50 for more RAM (512 mb), and Toshiba could get it for a lot less, then why wouldn't they do it in the first place if it costs so little? I'm kinda wondering about that too.
If this notebook uses DDR ram (which I think it does), it needs at least a constant 2.5V to keep it powered. Adding another stick of ram will up the power consumption anywhere from 2 to 4 watts, which is the roughly the same increase in consumption as would be experienced by turning the brightness of your TFT display from lowest setting to highest brightness setting. I don't know about you, but running my display at the highest brightness setting decreases my battery time by 20 minutes.Notebook memory actually does not consume that much power.
And, uh, here is my link:Add memory. You can minimize the reliance of Windows on virtual memory and reduce power consumption by adding memory to your mobile PC.
