Yes this is normal and nothing to worry about. By the way depending on how your Aspire's ram is configured 8gb of ram will make a dramatic improvement in performance and is cheap these days.
This is an even faster solution which may or may not be seen @ 1600 natively but the additional cost is worth the chance and if it doesn't 8gb @ 1333 is still wicked improvement. I wish this had been out when I up'd my lappy to 8gb's!

That is for when the computer BOOTs up.

From that point on, the system seems normal, but I haven't noticed any particular ...

Hello all, Have a question regarding Readyboost. I have a my book essential 1TB and a 186 gb MTD external HD. Both say divice cannot be used for Readyboost. But my 4gb scan disk camera card allows the use of Readyboost. Just wondering why it wont let me use the other harddrives.
