    I'm looking to buy a laptop either sony or dell, now the question is, most laptops makers come with 256mb but if you add at the time of purchase another 256 they charge in some cases almost $300-500 extra which is obscene, seeing i can put another 256 in for between $50-90 bucks, but who can i really rely on, its for my boss so i don't want fked up memory crashing his machine.

    Thanks

    If you plan on adding the memory after you buy the laptop make sure that it has an empty slot before you buy it. Alot of laptop makers will put in two 256mb modules rather than one 512mb module which could limit your ability to add memory without replacing existing modules.
