    i would say not really. and that ram is wasted as the processor will not use it at its full speed. the ram is 667mhz but the fsb of that cpu is 533mhz.

    What, 1GB? Windows Vista Home Premium uses like 70% of 1GB. To me I actually think 1GB isn't enough.

    Back to the Laptop, to be honest it's alright not exactly a hot deal but thats how much your paying for laptops around that spec.

    and that means?
    sorry but dont understand computer gargon but if you want any info on polycarbonate roofing then you know where to come:thumbsup:

    If your processor is only 533 mate that means , that 533mhz is the fastest it can deal with processes. So having RAM at 667mhz means that it can only be used to a maximum of 533mhz , so really its a waste of better RAM. Kinda hard to explain but i hope you get that...
