    I recently bought a used Mesh badged Mitac 8375 laptop and and would like to upgrade the 256 RAM that's in it. Can someone tell me if this is pretty straightforward and how I know what I should be looking for.

    Please keep in mind my computer knowledge is minimal but I was hoping to buy on ebay and fit myself as I need to keep costs down as I probably won't keep this laptop for long.

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    another crucial vote from me :thumbsup:

    as for actually installing the ram, it couldn't be easier..

    remove the flap on the underneath of the laptop, pop the ram in the slot.

    There will only be 1 slot available (either will do if 2 available), and the RAM only goes 1 way round.. fit it into the slot, and push it down until it locks in place.
    Sorted.:smashin:
