Questions for those of you who know lots about computers...I know it's supposed to be easy to upgrade RAM and I've heard that a good place to buy sticks is crucial.com (true? false?). Do you know if both sticks of RAM in the X6x-series laptops are user-replaceable? I think on some old models, the "main" stick (which came with the computer) wasn't, but I don't know if this has changed.
If both are replaceable, do you think I should leave the RAM configured as it is when I buy my tablet, which is 1 512MB DIMM, and put in two new 1GB sticks when I get the computer? Or should I upgrade the memory that comes with it to 1 1GB DIMM and only need to install one more when I get it? I'm mostly worried about being able to actually use the computer when it arrives without too much trouble. However, if I keep it at 512MB, then I think I'll be able to put that stick into my old laptop, which could definitely use the boost. I'll have to check on compatibility, but either way, it seems like the economical choice -- 1GB sticks are around $45-50 and I'd still have the 512GB for something else, whereas Lenovo charges over $60 just to upgrade and I wouldn't get the "extra" stick out of it.
I realize that probably nobody cares about this...but if you have experience with doing this, please give a girl a hand
