The Crucial story starts with Micron Technology, Inc., one of the largest dynamic random access memory (DRAM) manufacturers in the world and the only one based in the U.S. Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, Micron manufactures DRAM chips and assembles them into high-quality memory modules for sale to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") worldwide. Over the past 26 years, Micron has learned that when you make some of the very best memory in the world, lots of companies want it, from computer makers to wireless device manufacturers to printer producers.
But then Micron asked, well, what about the end user? What about the everyday folks who want to upgrade their existing systems with OEM-quality memory—the home desktop user, the IT network guy, the student notebook user? Why don't we offer our memory to the public, at factory-direct pricing? So in 1996, Micron responded to a growing demand for high-quality memory upgrades among end users who wanted the best possible performance from their systems. Micron launched Crucial Technology in November of that year, and for the first time, end users had the opportunity to buy directly from the manufacturer the same memory modules bought by the world's major OEMs for original installation in their systems.
Let me start of with telling you the purpose of the review, I recently had my laptop stolen so I decided to get a replacement. I had decided to invest in an Acer 3610 with 256 ddr2, 1.5 Celeron and a 60 gig hard drive. Now why weighing up the options I noticed the same laptop with 1 gig of dd2 was almost £200/$300 more than the version with 256 ddr2. Therefore, a quick visit over to Crucial’s site and running the system scanner reveals 1024 ddr2 dual channel kit 4200 sodimm is ideal for my laptop and coming in at £69.31/ $143.16 which means it works out at a half saving. Now I know its still not cheap, but what we aim to find out here at Xtreme is, Is the upgrade necessary on a laptop and what benefits it has to you the end user
