Maximize your Laptop Memory

Most yuppies now own laptops. But we don't always have the money to buy more memory or invest in external hard drives. But what can you do to maximize your laptop memory?

Well, you can try doing any of the following:

1) Defrag. It reorganizes the contents of your hard disk so that pieces of each file can be stored close together and contiguously, creating larger regions of free space for future files.

2) Back-up old, no longer used or relevant files into CDs, zip disks or other hard drives.

3) Clean up your files. Once in a while, check your files for things you can already relegate to the recycle bin, such as downloaded movies and videos from forwarded e-mails. You've had your fun with them anyway so let your memory breathe.

4) Configure your virtual memory to have a larger value than the default so you can also use some of your hard disk aside from your RAM. Allows for faster computing.
