I'm planning on installing Xubuntu 14.04, and I heard that with my current specs, Xubuntu 14.04 can still run pretty smoothly, but I still want to upgrade the RAM to increase performance.


E1505's maximum RAM is 2GB, and can only accept DDR2 RAM sticks, and after searching lots of computer stores, the only DDR2 for Laptops I found is a one 2GB DDR2 RAM stick, my question is, can E1505 handle one 2GB DDR2 RAM stick on one slot, while the other slot is empty?


If not, I guess I'll have to stick with my current specs then, unfortunately ordering online is not an option.

Hy, if you want to "extract" maximum from this device, I think that is ok to install aditional chip of 1G (at 266 MHz) (in this case memory are working in dual-chanel) and is more responsive that 1 memory at 2G, This is just an ideea at first-see.


Try to find a secondhand memory.


BUT FIRST SEE LAST UPDATE FOR BIOS for memory compatibility and stability
