    Default Getting RAM on a laptop...

    Well my graphic design class is getting free laptops (party), I looked up the specs online, and it comes with 1GB of ram (but a normal 450GB to save stuff).

    1GB of RAM sucks... but it can save a good amount of data. I was wondering what kind of RAM I could buy, things i'll need to know, maybe a link of where to go?

    Thanks in advance.

    Get 8gb ram seeing as your getting a free laptop you might as well spend a lil extra on ram?

    There's a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.

    Bro do these 3 easy steps:
    1)Look up the laptop spec to see how much max ram it can take
    2)Search for the ram max ram from ebay or amazon etc.
    3)Buy the ram max ram from ebay or amazon etc.

    -Success-

    You can try ebay, crucial.com, newegg.com, there are a bunch of sites but those are trustworthy (most are).
    newegg is very good

    1GB of RAM for a graphics class? Photoshop will take a day and a half to open up. Better put 8GB in that bitch.

    You don't need 8GB for PS.

    Stop comparing hard drive space to memory, they're not the same thing and not comparable. It's like comparing CPU cache to RAM, there's just no point.

    I know I don't need 8GB for photoshop, but I want to use thie free laptop as a second one. With 1GB if RAM I won't be able to do the normal stuff I do with it, so I was gonna add some things to it, in which I don't know about...

    Default RE: Getting RAM on a laptop...

    If it only comes stock with one gig of ram, then I can imagine the processor isn't very powerful either (which you need to run PS).

    If you get four gigs you'll be fine.

    Lol yeah I can. I wouldn't throw 8GB in anything unless you had the sticks laying around or you were intending it to be a workstation/rig.
