Re: Has anyone seen such a mythical beast as an 8GB RAM laptop?
HP is advertising some:
Though when you configure one with 8GB, it says "Expected delivery
date of 4/19".
Personally, I can't WAIT for the 4GB SODIMMs to become available.
Apparently, any Santa Rosa (Intel 965 M chipset) based laptop should
be able to support 8GB, and the more the better. I currently run Vista
x64 on my Thinkpad t61p with 4GB of RAM, and more would definitely be
good. I'm a consultant and an instructor, and I regularly have a need
to run multiple VMs, each with 2GB of RAM. I'm on the road ALL the
time, often with little or no internet access (in secure areas on
customer sites), so I need to have all of my stuff with me, and I need
to be able to run it locally. So I've currently got 520GB of disk (one
200GB and one 320 GB in the Ultrabay), and I'll be happy when
Samsung's normal-sized 500GB 2.5" drives are available - I'll swap out
both drives to get it up to a full terabyte.
