The X300 seems to support 8GB[1], however may need some tweeking runnin with Linux[2]


On my Intel Core Duo (Yonah) 1.83 GHz I have 2x Crucial CT25664AC667 R 2GB sticks. This is the result:

free -m
            total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:         3033        275       2758          0         11        148

Hey Paul, I have the same model with a 2GB Kingston-Module at the moment. (The reseller changed the orig 1GB-module by retail-reperation)

Do you guys really think that the Intel i945 Chipset is not capable to handle the full 4gb? (like stated in footnote 3)

Intel themselve say:

     "Up to 10.7 GB/s of bandwidth and 4GB memory addressability for faster system responsiveness and support for 64-bit computing."

The Wikipedia states 4 gig as well.

Are there any other reasons than your expirience with your laptop and ram-module combination to threaten everybody with a t60, r60, x60 or x61 model to upgrade their ram to 2x2gb?

Otherwise I would try and buy me a seccond ram module (to waste more for the gma950) and then suggest to take that footer out.

Or are there any reasons, I don't see them??? --Nonix 23:18, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

No, the Intel 945 chips really cannot make 4GB available to the operating system. Yes you can put 4GB on a 945 chipset, but the last GB will be unaccessible due to PCI mappings. It also does not matter if you run 32 or 64bit, the OS will not be able to see more then roughly 3GB. --Tonko 08:52, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
