    Quick question for Eee owners (any model)

    Has anyone upgraded the RAM in their's?? if so what did you go for?

    There is a lot of 2Gb SODIMMs around and they vary a lot in price from about £15 - £40

    also

    was it worth it?

    Yeah it's worth it - i don't have a swap file for XP so it made some sense. I just picked some random RAM up and slapped it in - doesn't seem to be fussy what you pop in there. Of course the built in Linux couldn't see more than 1gb but i soon got shot of that.

    that's no use as there's only 1 ram slot in netbooks

    I've got a 901 linux and the 1gb is fine, 1gb in xp should be fine as long as your not doing anything too memory hungery (like gameing)
    there are some reported memory issues, depends on the model and memory speed.

    I love my 901 for size (that 1" less makes a big difference to me) weight (1kg) and great battery life (a good 5 hours at least)

    although if you're considering getting one I'd also have a look at the new samsung NC10 and toshiba NB100 before you do.

    Re: Quick question for Eee owners (any model)

    I pretty much just use my Eee for internet, email and the BBC iplayer, oh and frets on fire (though its tricky with such small F keys). It was issues with make of RAM I was worried about really

    Re: Quick question for Eee owners (any model)

    I cannnot remember which ones had issues off hand, also may of been early bios issues.

    Check here http://forum.eeeuser.com/ it's a great forum for the eeepc

    But off hand I'd say stick with 1gb
