  • Win XP and 4 gigs of Ram?

    Will a Sager 579X laptop with 4 gigs of ram work with WinXP? Reason I ask is Id like to buy a new laptop, but swallowing the 150 for a new OS is hard for me atm. I know XP will see about 3gig, but will the laptop have an issue with it?

    Also will the Robson memory chip cause any problem if XP is installed?

    I would like to update to Vista 64 at some point, but I want to stay with XP or dual boot Vista at some point

    XP 32 bit will see about 3 gb and will run ok, XP 64 bit will see all 4 gb. as for the turbo memory, it would need to be disabled before installing xp and enabled later on if you upgrade (downgrade, depending on your view 8) ) to vista

      Be warned though, Sager does not support XP 64. You should consider getting Vista 64( HP or Ultimate) so that your system can recognize the full 4 Gb of RAM
