    Tempted to pick one of these up, but with the SNB refresh right around the corner, I'm not so sure. I didn't see a suspected MSRP on the 3830TG - can anyone tell me what the 3820TG debuted at, or what its price has been in the past?

    Do you guys think it's safe to upgrade to the 1.19 modded bios with my acer 3820tg-6829? (i5-480m, 6550m)

    The I5/HD 5650 4820TG was introduced at $850. The 3820TG was only introduced in Canada with an I3/HD 5650 or an I5/HD 5470 GPU. The I3 retailed for under $800 when it was introduced.

    Read the data sheet of the SSD.

    I got another question, is 8gb of ram worth it, is it going to make my laptop faster and is 80$ a good price for corsair 1333 2x4gb ram? I playing some games and sometime my ram gets to 88% used. only 3.8gb (Intel graphics)

    Help! I followed the BIOS recovery and flashing guide in order to upgrade from 1.13 to 1.19, and now, I can't figure out which file I need to rename to XXXX.FD. I'd use the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool but the last time I tried to update the BIOS this way, it didn't work.

    Mine has 8gb ram, and while I upgraded from a really crappy system (see sig) and I can tell loading times for certain memory-heavy programs like iTunes and various games are much quicker. I don't know whether the 4gb to 8gb jump will make much difference.

    I guess at a certain point, you get diminishing returns and I don't know any regular user who would swear by 8gb ram over 4gb ram.

    4GB or 8GB make no noticable difference for gaming performance (no game I heard about will profit from 8GB, at the moment)
