    Hi All

    I bought the NGC-1 as I saw it was upgradeable which was great.

    has anyone upgraded the RAM to 8GB and has it made any real difference?

    or for those that haven't, would you expect the upgrade to make a lot of/noticeable difference?

    as the cpu is quite small will a ram upgrade make a whole lot of improvements? Will windows "use" the extra ram?

    Any help appreciated, just thought I may as well upgrade the unit in the first few days of having it so its done.

    thank you

    It depends on what tasks are you running on this PC.

    Are they RAM demanding?

    I'm using it as a desktop replacement mostly for email, browsing, some light photo shop use.

    I see RAM usage is 72% last night when I had some web pages open and some apps.
