COMEX 2009 Singapore PC Show

Last Thursday, the biggest IT Show in Singapore returned.  The biggest brands, newest technology and of course great bargains are all in the COMEX 2009 PC Show.  On the first day of the PC show, my two officemates and I went.  I was really irritated in the past weeks since my laptop is running very slow especially when I do multi-task (that is the purpose of a notebook, right?)

My laptop which is an Acer Aspire 4720 is only running in a 1GB RAM.  I have decided to buy 1GB more to double the speed.  Anyway, I was only informed by my officemate about the IT show that day so I didn't have the time to check the specifications of my laptop's RAM.  Because of that, I asked the help of the Internet.  I even asked the help of my officemate to make sure I am buying the right RAM.

We then had our dinner at McDonald's.  I only ate the Mc Chicken Burger meal since I am on a diet.

When I arrived home, I saw that my laptop is 667 Mhz and not 533 Mhz.  I went back yesterday to Suntec to change it and also to make it 2GB.  Apparently, my existing RAM are two 512 MBs and there are only 2 slots.  So one 512 MB RAM has to go.
