My daughter is currently using a dell dimension 4600 but is getting a laptop as she heads off to college (dartmouth YAY!!!!) The computer has a 2.6 Ghz intel pentium 4 but a mere 512 MB of Ram. Is it worth it to go up to 2 GB of RAM for around 78 dollars or should we just retire it?
Thanks for your help!!!!!
Yes upgrading the ram to 2gb will definitely move things along faster.
That model can take 4gb of ram though 2 would be more then enough.
I assume it's running XP and with more ram it will be viable for surfing and other apps.
I think it's still worth it till 2012 when XP becomes unsupported.
I'm still running an older Dimension with a P4 and 1gb of ram supported and it's fine for internet activities.
