I don't think companies like MSI do the customer any favor by selling Notebooks with 256MB RAM and integrated shared memory graphics. The systems are expensive enough without some company trying to stiff you for upgrades because the laptop wasn't worth a pile dung to begin with. I mean spare me. Put windows XP Pro on that thing and that 192MB or 128MB of memory thats left is going to roll over and die.

You can probably make it with 32-64 mb of video memory... leaving too little RAM, I agree. But you can't blame the manufacturer on trying to reach the lowest possible price to attract more customers, plus you can always upgrade when buying the laptop.

RAM can usually be easily and cheaply upgraded. I bought a budget notebook and upgraded to 1GB RAM for only 100 from Crucial. I then upgraded HDD as well to a 100GB seagate model. Notebook plus upgrades was still cheaper than other models with lesser specs.
