Default mini 10v 2 gig ram... - 06-01-2009, 12:12 AM

is there a big increase in performace going from 1gb to 2gb? i have a mini10v right now running windows7 and im trying to get every ounce of power out of it... Also i got my hands on a scorpio black western digital 7200 rpm sata drive... im not concerned about battery life... i havent installed it yet, will this make a difference from the stock?

If battery life isn't an issue, it's worth it. I can't give any performance indicators though since I didn't even power mine on before I upgraded it to the 2 GB.

I am in the same boat as Anguish. I didnt even power my 10v on before upgrading the RAM. I can tell you that when I got my Mini 9, I ran it on 1 gig for a few weeks before upgrading it to 2 gigs and I did notice a nice difference in speed after doing so. If you are not concerned about battery life, then I would totally go for the 7200 rpm drive.
