Holy balls, what a difference!
I bought a new laptop for the intention of making it a small recording rig.
It came with 6gb ram & a 750gb hard drive. I knew that ram wasn't going to fly. I bought the Crucial 16gb kit upgrade (2 x 8gb cards) on Amazon. Wow!
I can't wait to try this out for recording. So far, I've been transferring files & uploading recording programs & net surfing, but the additional ram seems to make everything fly.
This is pretty new for a dinosaur like me.
