Sorry for the delay, but Hurricane Sandy left me without proper internet access for a week. This week we are taking a look at RAM (Random Access Memory). RAM is basically the short-term memory function for your PC. When your PC starts thinking about something, or runs an application, it puts it all in RAM so it can access it faster than it would if it kept all of that information on the hard drive. The more RAM you have, the more apps your PC can run concurrently.
