Technology Tip: How Much Memory Do You Have?

Have you ever been asked, "How much memory do you have?" Ten years ago this may have been an insulting question to ask. Today, it generally refers to the memory inside your computer.

Does your computer have enough memory? The best answer to this is "you'd always be happy with more." The more memory you have, the more programs you can run at once, and the faster your computer will run. With memory so inexpensive these days, it's almost a no-brainer.

Before you can add more memory to your computer, however, you need to know a couple of things:

  • How much memory does your computer currently have?
  • How much memory does your computer support?
  • Does the inside of your computer have any available slots for a new memory card?

Unless you really know what you're doing, these questions used to be difficult to answer. Now it's quite simple. Crucial.com has a small utility that will analyze your computer's "insides" and report how much memory you currently have, how much memory your computer can support, and let you know how many slots are available. It will also recommend good deals on new memory.
