Factory memory is 256.
The maximum memory it can take is 2GB. My plan was that when memory gets a
little reasonable, I'll put more memory in it.
I went to buy 1GB memory stick for it. The salesman told me that I'll be
wasting my money if I put 2 GB memory in it because celeron processors are
very inefficient in handling large memory and I'll not see any improvement
beyond 1GB. Is he right?
He also said that I should pur 2x512 instead of 1GB because I'll get more
improvement that way. Is he right?
3rd, bus speed is 400 MHZ. But the current memory is 333 mhz. Should I put
new memory at 333mhs or 400mhz.
What is your recommendation how far should I go with the upgrade and which
speed of the memory.
Thank you very much.

Re: Toshiba laptop M35 maximum memory advise
I just recently upgraded my HP Pavilion zd7010us from 512MB to 2GB.
The performance difference is like night and day. It is not uncommon
for me to have a dozen windows open and another dozen+ utilities
sitting in the system tray.
I don't think that the CPU being a Celeron will cut performance out
Functionally, I would think that there shouldn't be a major
difference between (1) 1GB vs (2) 512MB. The only thing I would say
is that if you buy the 2 512MB SoDIMMS you will be unhappy if you
later want to go to 2GB. I justed waited till the price was right at
Crucial then bought the 2 1GB SoDIMMS. They ran $339US.
When you are talking computers, the machine is no faster than its
slowest component. Always use the maximum rated speed for the
motherboard and you will get the best performance.
