    2GB (2x 1GB) 200-Pin SODIMM PC2-4200 DDR II for my HP Pavilion ZD8228EA laptop.
    It's made a huge difference, compared to the 2x 256MB sticks which were in there previously :hip:

    And 2x 100GB Fujitsu SATA 2.5" HDD's, plus a pair of Transcend StoreJet 2.5" SATA HDD Enclosures (red and blue) to put them in.
    I concede they're not the best, nor the fastest drives out there, but I got them for just £69.99 [including 48hr delivery], which was far too good a bargain to pass up :rock:
    The SATA enclosures include 'StoreJet' software, and have a “OneTouch” Auto-Backup function :clap:


    Both the RAM and the HDD's were delivered this morning (I'd already received the SATA enclosures), and are already being put to good use :thumb:

    Alot of people give them a bashing saying its all factory made crap. And its true that its all made in a factory but theres nothing rubbish about it. Hell if its good enough for satriani, vai, gilbert and ex-petrucci its gotta be good! But they are very good guitars! :rock:

    Im gonna swap out the pickups for some proper dimarzio's get some locking tuners AND im thinking of a paint job from alsacorp. Either the mirrachrome with the crystal FX overlay:
    http://www.alsacorp.com/products/kits_2/MC_CrystalFX.htm
    or the spetra fx:
    http://alsacorp.com/products/spectrafx/spectrafx_show.htm
    So its gonna be my own signature model in away, except it didnt come free :D
