So the usual time of writing academic papers, with Open Office spreadsheets/word open and the machine throws a fit. Thankfully i lost very little work due to regular saves, so I decided it was time to add some more memory to this machine !
Thankfully it allows mixing of memory sizes, so the 4G already installed would be useful and save a few quid, and I added in 3*16G DDR3 sticks – good service from PCWorld today in ordering online, picking up a few minutes later. Price is decent too !
Anyhow memorys installed :-

Time to crack on with the work !
