CORRECTION AND WARNING: Here's How Upgrader-Bulk Up Your PC's RAM

Published in Australian PC World, December 2001, page 132.

The December issue of Australian PC World stated in relation to an article on increasing the RAM of your computer ("Bulk up your PC's RAM"), under the subheading Ground Yourself, to "loosen the face-plate of an AC outlet and clip the wrist strap to it".

The editor advises that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should any person other than a qualified and licensed electrical technician ever loosen the face-plate or otherwise tamper or interfere with an AC outlet or other electricity supply. AC outlets carry live current and unqualified or unlicensed persons could expose themselves to injury or death, by electrocution by AC outlets or other electricity sources. You should contact your electrician or computer technician should you have any doubts as to the use of the wrist strap referred to above or the installation of any component into your computer.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
