* Back-story: Don't read this unless you're curious *
I try to run applications that do not use much RAM or virtual memory, but in this day and age, it's hard to do that. This was my dad's laptop and it isn't that old (IMO). I try to give comps as much life as possible and I'm easy to please. My dad is a goofball however and buys the crappiest computers (one of my desktops is an Emachine and the other a 700MHz Celeron from CompUSA). At least I don't expect much. But unfortunately, even though he has used PCs for decades, he doesn't seem to understand the importance of quality. I imagine he thinks 256MB is good enough and I'd be wasting money if I bought RAM and he should disown because I don't know how to spend money. Yeah, you can see, I'm a little bitter.
OK, enough of that crap. I want to upgrade my RAM. I know that the ze4900 has two slots available. I found this website that sells RAM for it. I don't know much about RAM. I'd like to find something cheaper, but I don't know what specs I need. I just know I'd like at least a 512MB stick, preferably 1GB. Can anybody help me?
