Can I purchase and install the HD cache after receiving the w700ds?  Forgot it on the initial order.

Hello W_Bart,


I would suggest save your money or buy more Ram if you need it. Turbo Memory won´t speed up your system very much,
but may cause more and complicated compatibility problems.
Lenovo itself, is offering a tool to disable it, to get out of trouble. So don´t waste your money.

TIP: If your computer runs satisfactorily now, it may not be necessary to update the system.
