This is NOT a homework question. School IT circriculums dont ask questions as hard as this, the hardest they ask is things like, what is 2 uses RAM and what does it stand for. I know this from first hand experience!

RAM is Random Access memeory and is used to store parts of applications that being run at the same time, they behave like small HD only that they are very fast in terms of access, SDRAM has a typical access speed of 10ns where standard ram has a time of about 70ns.  There is also the number of pins, you can have 30 pin, 72 pin or 168pin(?). It is very rare to find 30 pin RAM chips or motherboard that will accept them, 70 pin Rams are on the way out.

If you KNOW that this is a "hard" question, then why did you only offer 50 points (Easy), for it?
