Question 1012 memory upgrade - 03-11-2010, 08:13 PM

Hi everyone,

I just ordered 1012. As I understand it is possible to add/upgrade memory on it. So I have number of questions:
1. Should I add or buy one 2GB chip.
2. What and where to buy. I am in Canada. Any store recommendations? Internet is OK too.
3. Any instructions how to do this?

Thanks in advance.

There is only one memory slot in the 1012, so if you want 2GB you would have to buy a single 2GB SODIMM. PC2-5300 or faster.

Thanks.
Does it make sense to use faster memory even CPU does not support it?
Is this one OK? Newegg.ca - Crucial 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Laptop Memory Model CT25664AC667 - Laptop Memory

The one you link to is the minimum spec for the 1012 - it should work fine.

Any of those should be fine. Corsair is a good brand and it's cheapest, so I'd go with that one.

There's a handy video on Crucial's site that shows how to get to the memory. Relatively easy on the 1012.

will this one work for the mini 1012?
Amazon.com: OCZ OCZ2M8002G PC2-6400 CL 5-5-5-15 DDR2 800MHz SODIMM 2GB Module: Electronics

at $30.07 right now, seems a great price if it will work...
