Kevin Tofel of JKOnTheRun has just completed a successful upgrade of his Vista-based Q1P from 1GB to 2GB and is reporting happiness! One of the early tests Kevin did was to test the standby speed and he reports that coming out of standby is almost instant which is very nice indeed. I’ve just had a look at the prices of the SO-DIMM modules here and its not cheap. For 3 seconds of standby improvement, I’ll stick with 1GB on my Q1P. Especially as I’m running XP TE and appear to have a fair bit of RAM free along with a longer battery life than under Vista. Its a great result for those that want to improve Vista on UMPCs but my goodness, doesn’t it prove how much Vista just kills small PC’s?
Kevin is working on some more tests which I hope include battery life. Keep an eye on him at jkOnTheRun.
