Hi. I have a Libretto U100. It is meant to have 512mb RAM. But when I check it through "My Computer" it says it has 496mb. Can someone explain why this is? Thanks.

Hi

It's because of the shared memory graphic card.
This notebook was delivered with the Intel 855GME 16MB-64MB shared memory graphic card.
If the graphic card needs more memory it takes it from the main memory.
The standard value is 16MB.
512MB-16MB=496MB ;)
