Acer Aspire 5720Z Memory Upgrade

This is an update on the Debian 64-bit on Acer 5720Z Spring 2008. The power adapter was replaced recently due to damage caused by someone pushing a chair over the cable. The laptop works very well and gives full charge from the battery.

As luck would have it, laptops were on sale as Staples and they were actually cheaper than desktops with or without the monitor. I decided to buy one. I also picked up a Dlink WBR-1310 Wireless router.
