memory gap

as mentioned in my blogs prior this one, lately i've been very interested in digiscrapping. so i installed a photoshop program in my laptop. then i proceeded to download freebies from the net to start my digiscrapping. but these past few days my computer has been lagging BIG TIME! just starting up windows take a couple minutes. and i can't open two windows at the same time! my ram was only 256. all along i thought that was enough but it seems adobe programs take up so much ram space! for 3 straight days i would sleep in the wee hours of the morning trying to surf and scrap. i would sleep at around 3 am and i'd be frustrated coz i actually accomplished nothing since my computer just won't work!

hubby was very sympathetic, or perhaps i wasn't that nice to look at anymore with the dark circles under my eyes and all. so i convinced him that we should upgrade our memory. we first went by ugong, pasig for some business that needed to be settled, then off to megamall we had a hard time looking for the right memory since the neo guys told us they prefer the kingston brand. we finally found the cheapest one, a kingston 1 gb ddr 533 for 4,950...and the neo guys from digital playground installed it for us so that this upgrade won't affect our warranty.

now the computer performs so well that blogging and surfing is a pleasurable experience once again! i intend to enjoy this fast broadband connection, at least until the bill for this purchase comes. ;)
