MEMORY OUTFIT Kingston claims it can solve your Vista notebook memory problem.

It boasts it is the first manufacturer to offer full production of 2GB 533MHz and 667MHz ValueRAM SO-DIMMs, concurrent with the release of the new 800MHz Value RAM SO-DIMMs.

In case you were wondering, SO-DIMMS are the kind of memory used in most notebooks and miniPCs these days.

R&D boffin Marc Bernier, at Kingston Technology, reckons the need for high density SO-DIMM memory is increasing.

His mate, MSI's Vice President of Channel Business Development Division, Daniel Wang, said: "When the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system launches, more users will choose to move to at least 2GB of system memory to gain improved productivity, enhanced visual quality and visual style."

What he means is that if you install Vista on your notebook or miniPC you'll need at least 2GB of memory just to get past the login screen.

But at an MSRP of £349 for a stick of 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SO-DIMM memory it looks like you'll need deep pockets to keep your machine up to speed. µ
