I currenlty own an ASUS M3000-N, with 2x256mb memory config. Asus datasheets specify that the maximum configuration is 1024mb, using 2x512mb. What I would like to know is what do you think about using:
1. 1x1024mb (like this: http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator/PartsInfo.asp?ktcpartno=KVR266X64SC25/1G
2. 2x1024mb (total of 2gb)
For what I have read and been told, laptops made a few years ago weren't associated with using 1gb sodimm ddr modules because simply there weren't any available (or were far too expensive). Saying this, computer specs were limited by what was available in the market, that was 512mb. Using only 2 available slots in my computer, the maximum memory specification would automatically be 1gb of total memory.
I would appreciate examples of this being applied successfully (on asus laptops, preferably), and of course absolute confirmation that this can/cannot be done (and why). Note that I won't accept answers stating "you can't because specifications say so", because I already know what the specs say :P ...
Thank you very much in advance
