Before the upgrade my Inspiron 6000 usually crashed when running Adobe Premiere and Photoshop at the same time, and it had 1GB; now it does it without a problem, and I can even play music in iTunes while doing so.
The truth is that the computer is not really that much faster, probably the Centrino 1.73 GHz CPU can't do any better. The real gain is stability, because I can run several programs at the same time without worrying about possible crashes. One thing that did improve was MP3 encoding, it took at least 30% less time to rip a few CDs from my collection, and put them in iTunes, pretty nice.
Now, running Ubuntu Linux, (I have both OSs in my laptop), the story is quite different. I really do not understand how Linux handles memory, but it does it much better than Windows. The OS fires up in seconds, and all apps pop up much faster. I when displaying icons in the accompanying Ubuntu menus, I used to have to wait a second or so to get the the icons displayed, now they pop up instantly. Apps in Linux did truly improve after the RAM upgrade. If it weren't for MS Office, by far the best office suite, I'd move to whatever may be different from Windows.
On the technical side, the memory was instantly recognized by the system's BIOS, it does not heat up any more than what the old samsung memory modules did. The BIOS does not allow to check latencies, but I guess they're just fine since the system works perfectly.
Great value and performance that meet my system's requirements. When I make the move to an Apple iMac, I guess I'll upgrade memory using Corsair, can't understand why they charge $ 850, for the 4GB when well known memory manufacturers, sell it for $ 200 or less. If anybody knows, I'd appreciate the input.
Oh another thing, at the same time I upgraded my wife's newer laptop with memory from Crucial. Worked like a charm.
