Question about Lenovo ThinkPad Z61m Notebook
I recently bought the Acer Aspire AS3694. It has windows vista on it but only 512mb ram which clearly isn't enough how much would it cost to buy more ram - about 2gb maybe? And also how much do computer whizz's normally charge to install it for you?
You can do what i did and went to frys and bought 2-2gb rams for my laptop and it iss a smoking fast laptop running vista and also multiple open windows it is really the way to go. Don't waste your money just getting two go head and get 4g

Never, NEVER buy a computer that is going to run Vista with less than 1Gig minimum!
2 Gigs of RAM is recommended for Vista.
To check on prices and the type check some online sites that sell memory
Most laptops have a removable door or hatch on the bottom where you can access the memory very easily. The modules easily clip in or out but never use force! (RTFM)
If you take it to someone, they'd probably charge $50 for labour, plus parts and the job takes 5 minutes.
Easily do it yourself, or find a teenager who's good with computers. Son, nephew, neighbour perhaps?
Before buying any new modules, check your laptop to see how many slots you have and what type of modules are in there now.
To upgrade to 2 Gig, you will have to buy 2 new 1Gig modules, There's a 2Gig kit (1Gigx2) listed at one site for $80.
You would remove you current memory and install the 2 new 1Gig modules. Sell your 512 or make a keychain from it.
