Glad your Happy with it, Should be much better with the additional Ram! (Note: Remove power and battery, then press power button to "discharge" any remaining power, then install ram ;D)
The only thing I saw that I would have mentioned had I saw thread eirler, is the DDR2-667
Have an older MSI Wind U-100 with I believe an Atom N30 (1.6ghz w/sysbus @ 667...OC'ed), so even though it states my ram @ 667/800 not sure what the factory installed speed is on the 1 gig "OB" for XP. Has dimm slot, so I would have to install 1 2-gig stick and in bios disable OB as 2 gigs of ram is max and I don't wish to mix OB ram with the one dimm slot.
Runs good, but cpu is always high @ 70-80% b/c use it in the truck for 2 gps Apps/2 USB Sat. Rec., ...Garmin mobile PC/ Delorme Street Atlas, media player to factory stereo input and another program for the Trucks OBD-II diagnostic port to USB that allows access to all kinds of engine sensor readouts like oil, coolant, transmission temp, Air fuel ratio, etc. ...its a long list of all engine/trans stats and currently updated sensor readouts.
And whats known as the "BCM" ...Body controll module that allows with a click of the mouse to lower windows, test wipers-low-high and delayed, lock/unlock doors, etc. ...its long list too. (This is for testing and not to be used while driving).
Sorry for the long read about all that, but thats why mine runs @ 80% CPU use all the time.
Your processor is much faster!
Good Luck with it, sounds like a great choice and you had some very intelligent pre-purchase questions, hope everyone helped ya out.
I think your going to be very happy with it.
