Now found RAM included memory in expansion slot

  thimblerig 17:28 12 Aug 05

Came to think about adding memory to Toshiba Equium bought last Xmas and have now discovered that 512MB RAM includes 256MB in expansion slot when sold. Feel slightly aggrieved to find that to upgrade by 256MB need to buy 512MB module to swop with the 256MB already in situ. Have no recollection that laptop sales literature advised expansion slot was not free but understand on raising issue with vendor it not an unknown practice. I would welcome any comments readers might have.

It is pretty standard practice to use both SODIMM slots on laptops. The only exception I have found has been sony, although they to have recently been doing it.

My only suggestion would be to recoup some of the outlay on new SIMMs by selling the old ones on ebay.
