I want to add memory to my laptop and have it tuned-up, so to speak. How does one select a computer technician? Should I go to someplace like the Geek Squad at Bestbuy? Should I just surf Craigslist? I'm in Manhattan if that matters. Thanks.

Please explain a little more, Hal06.

What make/model is the laptop PC? On some, it is extremely easy to change/add memory, and most of us can do it ourselves. On others, it is a bit more difficult, and having an experienced Tech do it makes sense.

Also, what does "tuned-up" mean to you? There are folks here that can help in that area on the board, and once you get the additional RAM, you may be pleased with the increased performance of your laptop PC.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
