Toshiba laptop M35 maximum memory advise

Hello, I have Toshiba laptop M35X-S149 with   Intel Celeron M 1.5 GHz .
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.

Hi John,

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
at 1GB.

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.
