If you really feel comfortable working with the inside of your computer,
then you should buy RAM from a computer store and put it in yourself.
Many people *don't* feel that comfortable, though. For Windows XP, 1 Gb
is the minimum, and 2 Gb is ideal.

Bluetooth is not perfectly secure, but I don't rely on it for long-range
public data transmission anyway. Instead, I use it to synchronize my PDA
and mobile phone to my laptop. WiFi, properly used, is much more secure.
