I got a Toshiba NB205 netbook with windows 7 starter on it. It has an Intel Atom N280 CPU (1.66GHz) and 1 GB RAM.
it works OK for surfing the web. But sluggish. Would more RAM help? would it be worth it? crucial says it can take a max of 2GB in a single slot. They have a 2GB module for $31.
thoughts? sure ram will improve things. but it's an atom so ram is not the only weak link in the chain. why am I buying i5 computers as a minimum, but they put out atom processsors for other machines? and people buy them?
