I never really liked the whole laptop "thing" because I wanted more control over how my PC is configured. Laptops just do not offer a lot of flexibility, upgradeability, or future-proofing; however, G.Skill will be offering a way to do just that with the new Ripjaws series DDR3 SO-DIMM memory kits.
The new Ripjaws DDR3 will be available in a number of options as we have come to expect from G.Skill. The entire Ripjaws SO-DIMM line will be 1.35V and start with a single 4 GB module at 1600 MHz CL9 and go up to a 16 GB kit (dual 8 GB modules) at 1866 MHz CL10. This could be a quick easy upgrade to your gaming laptop or a way to breath new life into an older laptop. It's very similar to what Kingston has done with their HyperX PnP memory kits that we reviewed a while ago. They really do give a substantial performance boost to mobile systems with integrated graphics.
You would be amazed at how a simple memory upgrade can change the characteristics of a laptop. If I buy a new laptop or tablet, quality memory like the G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 SO-DIMM will be the first accessory I reach for. They are available right now starting as low as $34.99US. Now go and extend the life of (or increase the performance of) your laptop right now.
