Intel Turbo Memory and W500

Has anyone added the Intel Turbo Memory half height mini pc card (4GB) to their W500?  Can you just plug it in and install latest drivers, or are additional things needed?



 Does it help?  Does user-pinning work?

Re: Intel Turbo Memory and W500

I have the 2 GB Turbo Memory card that shipped with my W500 (model 4062-27U).  It seems to work just fine, when you install the driver for it, a little application from Intel appears that allows you to turn it on or off.  The application notes state that the "user pinning" function is not supported in the latest (Vista) release - presumably this is because the driver is smart enough to figure out what to keep ready in the memory stash on the card and what to discards.

I have no idea if this little card makes the computer work better or not, all I can say is that I have never encountered any problems with it.  I use Vista Business 32 as my OS.
