    I don't think their walkthrough is biased, but people should know that LL sells these machines.

    What I find rather hilarious is the choice of TWO SODIMMs from OCZ in a guide about building the MS-1029....that system's memory will be running at a smokin' 266Mhz :D (Well, maybe 333 with BIOS v2.50). That aside, since the MS-1029 doesn't support dual channel there is little to no reason to go with 2 x 512MB for 1GB total as now you've limited yourself for future upgrades.

    They do work, orjiin, just in my experience they are not nearly as compatible (moreso with the MS-1013 than the MS-1029) as the previous generation using Inprocomm's chipset.

    LL does not sell anything! They write reviews and guides. Report news and so on.

    Ask anyone that has gone to LL and got a laptop from me on there. What is the name of the company on the invoice. The invoice says nothing about LL. And BTW I do not own LL either.
