OCZ Technology have renewed their commitment to offering performance and quality to mainstream users, through the release of their PC2-5400 2GB SODIMM modules recently.

The modules are also available in 512MB and 1GB capacities, whilst the range as a whole, offers rated timings of 5-5-5-15 and requires 1.8V as the power source.

The company cite aggressive pricing of these parts, together with their renowned technical support and lifetime warranty as clinching the deal, with complete product satisfaction and unparalleled peace of mind.

Windows Vista is also mentioned by OCZ as being a scenario where upgrade RAM is crucial for smooth performance levels, due to the increased memory requirements of the operating system. However, the Sunnyvale, CA company also believes that consumers utilising their laptop systems for picture editing, music and videos, would also be a beneficiary of the boosted performance experience.

Laptops are becoming quiet powerful lately, might be worth looking into getting one to game with cause of the money you can save with electricity…
Do many laptops actually support 2GB memory modules?

Any that i've looked at closely state a maximum of 2GB using 1GB modules.

I'm going to be replacing my latop in the summer and it will probably come with 2GB already installed, but taking that up to 4GB would be great, especialy for Photoshop and LightRoom on Vista.
As far as I know my laptop only supports up to 2x1gb Sticks, but I would think the new 64bit Core2Duos would be able to support it.

Though if I'm honest, XP Pro, 2Ghz CoreDuo & 2GB of Ram flies. Certainly copes with anything short of heavy photoshop work :)
Just had a look on Crucial for upgrade uptions for the Asus R1F

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
Which makes it seem that 2GB per module might work, but not officially supported.

With Vista being more memory hungry, and laptops becoming more powerful, it's only a matter of time we start to see laptops with 4GB or more.

EDIT:
Looks like 2GB modules are available through them as well, but they are almost 3x the cost of 2x1GB modules :(

EDIT 2:
Amazing what you find when you start looking. Corsair do them too, and Scan sell them :) Same horific pricing though :(
Since you can't overclock there no point in getting expensive memory imo
