The illustration above—from weblog Core77’s netbook case study—highlights ten common usage positions and the pain points you’re asking for down the road with each. No one wants glowing red joints! Interestingly, the most comfortable position, according to the study, is position #2 above: lying down with the device slightly elevated on the user’s thigh with bent knees.
Finally upgraded the ram on my laptop to 1GB. It’s not that fantastic considering most are working with perhaps 2GB or more but definitely better than what I had to endure for the last 2 years. Since i’m not running vista and there’s no more slots for extra ram, this will do. Hopefully, I won’t have messages like “out of memory” when I’m doing school stuff. Now, the boot up time is approximately 1 min, much much faster than my previous pathetic wait of 4 mins.
In case you’re a poor student like me who bought a laptop with not so good stats and wish to make it run faster, check out this good help site. Initially tried to insert it in parallel but it wouldn’t budge and on searching, found out that it should go in the slots at 45degrees before pushing it down the notch.
