i have an ibm thinkpad, xp pro, 256 mb ram, that i recently bought refurbished. when i have several applications running - IE, notepad, word, windows defender - there is a long pause when i move from one application to the next. is there something external that is low-cost and relatively easy to set up that i can get to improve the speed?
How does Prefetcher work?:
it looks like external RAM may or may not exist?:
im guessing an external hard drive would not speed anything up?
