This Week's Highlights

When my trusted old Toshiba Notebook died last month, I was absolutely devastated. Luckily, all my work on the notebook hard drive has been backed up recently. I was pretty stuck without a notebook to do my work ... so as an emergncy measure I had to go out and get a cheap netbook. Hence, I bought the Fujitsu Lifebook MH330 which was reviewed last week. It's one of the thinnest netbooks available on the market offering a massive feature list. I must admit ... I was pretty impressed.

The only thing I was a little concerned was the original memory size of 1Gb. Now, for most users 1Gb is plenty. It's enough for surfing the net, checking emails, iTunes, MSN and Facebook etc. But you know me ... I'm a "mini-power" user. I like to occasionally use Photoshop, Excel, Word and of course using the web-based CMS to edit content ... LIVE on the Funky Kit website. Needless to say all these applications are running simultaneously!

Ah, you might say ... can a netbook handle all of this? Well, believe it or not ... the answer is YES! The onboard 1Gb of ram installed may not be enough, but if you have to 2Gb of ram ... the system should run a lot smoother and faster. And this is what we are about to find out ...

So, I contacted Crucial who specialise in memory products, and asked if they have a 2Gb SODIMM memory module that would be suitable for the netbook. They do ... and they agreed to ship a sample for us to test. For those who are not familiar with Crucial  ... here's a little blurb taken from they're website.
