Upgrading the RAM in the Asus Eee PC 1000HE
I just upgraded the RAM in my Asus Eee PC 1000HE to 2GB a few moments ago and while I haven't had a chance to run any more tests on what the additional RAM can do, I will say that it was a quick and painless process.
Upgrading the RAM in an Asus Eee PC 1000HE
If you've ever upgraded the RAM in your home PC or another notebook than upgrading the RAM in this netbook should be really simple. I found this video on YouTube which can give you a step by step walk through if you need it:
If you don't want to watch the five minute video just follow these steps: Remove the battery, take out the two screws from below the battery and swap out the RAM (push out on the clips). Just remember to press F2 when the computer is loading up to bring up the BIOS. You should see the increased RAM on the first BIOS screen. From there, press F10 to save the settings and you're all done (if you don't go into the BIOS and save the new info it won't recognize the change so make sure you do this).
Picking the RAM
I bought this 2GB by Crucial for less than $25 and it worked like a charm. There are other netbook RAM deals that I've posted about before if you prefer another manufacturer. You can pick up the ASUS Eee PC 1000HE for less than $400 on Amazon.. I'll report more after I spend some more time with the upgraded netbook.
What type of performance increase have you seen from upgrading the RAM in your netbook to 2GB?
