Screw it. I upgraded the RAM in my Inspiron 9300 from 1GB (2 x 512MB) to 2GB (2 x 1GB) Crucial DDR2-533 PC-4200. This started with a deal from Frys I found on dealnews.com. And I need to upgrade the 256MB of RAM in the Dimension 4700 as it’s going to be a file server soon. And perhaps an SVN server. =) 1GB extra for that baby (Corsair).
Once the new notebook memory is working, I’ll sell the old stuff, I guess.
