Upgrading the RAM on my Laptop.
Just bought a "Dell Inspiron 6000" and it came with everything I asked except for the RAM which I knew I was going to have to buy a better set. Currently in it is 2x 256mb sticks, I took the back panel off to check. (BTW is there a program to check what your running as far as ram, and there type and speed?) Anyway, I do not know the speed, the pin, or whether or not it is dual channel. I don't know if there is a program or what. Anyway, I would like to up this to 1gb, or even better 2gb, Dual Channel or not don't care. I have a budget of about 125$ but if I was going to go with the 2gb, I could go maybe close to 200$, if its really worth it for a laptop I don't know. Basically, I want to know some links to what to purchase. I would like to order soon. So some input would be awesome. Thanks dudes.
