It surfs the internet. It play videos, photos, and it’s a full-fledged iPod. It even play games. Well, I better start saving because it’s not cheap. It retails for $499.
After reading about 8 Things That Suck About The iPad, I’m not sure if I want one.
Who would have thought? The source of my hardware issues this past two weeks was the RAM memory. As I previously wrote in my older post, I was experiencing a kernel panic. The symptoms were that my keyboard and mouse would locked up, the keyboard’s Caps Lock and Scroll Lock also flashed. The only recourse was to reset the computer.
Initially, I thought it was the power supply, then I thought the CD, DVD or floppy drives. I disabled the on-board sound. I even changed graphics cards. I should have tested the memory first. That was my gut feeling. I read on one of the forums that whenever there is a kernel panic that most likely, it would be a RAM issue. I should have done the memory test first.
The last couple days, I contemplated on buying a new motherboard, CPU and memory, but it can wait for now. Eventually, I need to upgrade.
Isolating the problem was great. It was an issue I have been battling for almost two weeks. Stupid me.
Currently, Frys sells 1GB DDR PC3200 400Mhz memory for $30. That’s the cheapest DDR without any rebates. I hate rebates.
I should really upgrade my system. I was looking at a package deal, an AMD Atlon X2 Quad 620 for $99, an Asus motherboard for only $40 at the Micro Center. It’s really a great deal. Throw in a 2GB DDR2 800Mhz RAM at $49 and I’m set to go, but I’ll wait for a little bit.
