Hello, I want to upgrade my Portege to the 2GB maximum. I have managed to lift the keyboard, however I don't want to damage the plastic sheet which is covering the memory slot under the keyboard. Is there an easy way of doing this without having to remove this plastic sheet?
You might wan to contact toshiba and ask them about upgrade possiblities. I have the same computer and have found that its best to contact them or a proffesional when dealing with upgrades. I would tell you for sure if I had gone through with my upgrades, but that would kill my warranty. Dont forget to rate thanks!

The Samsung N150 Laptop comes installed with 1GB of
Memory and can be upgraded to a maximum of
2GB Memory. This computer has 1 (one) SO-DIMM memory slot, so to upgrade to 2GB of RAM, you will need to replace the installed RAM module with a single 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2-667 200pin SDRAM SO-DIMM memory module.

Your laptop uses the 200-pin DDR1 PC2700 333mhz memory. I think the maximum memory per slot is 1GB, which means the maximum memory will be 2GB (2 x 1GB).
The "shared" video will use either a maximum of 64MB, or, I'm not sure on the maximum video memory if you have the ATI RS480M video.
Hi, You can have a maximum of 2GB in that laptop 1x1GB in each slot, the ram speed is PC3200, PC5300 is too fast so the bios will not recognize it as the maximum is only 400MHz, stick to the PC3200 for each stick. Ask for SODIMM DD2 SDRAM, PC3200 2x1GB, i also recommend Kingston as the ram manufacturer.
Thanks to Microsoft Knowledge Base for help with my answer:
First, find out what the maximum amount of memory is. This is generally listed by most of the manufacturers. This will let you know what upgrade potential the system has. Next, determine how the memory configuration is when you buy the system. For example, a laptop that has 2GB of memory can be configured as either a single 2GB module or two 1GB modules. The single memory module allows for better upgrade potential because by adding another module you are gaining more memory without sacrificing any current memory. Upgrading the two module situation with a 2GB upgrade would result in the loss of one 1GB module and a memory total of 3GB.
Your particular model of laptop will allow up to 2GB of memory. Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.
As for the hard drive, I believe the standard 2.5" drive is compatible in any size you'd prefer.
