RAM

Short term, fast memory

What is it?

It stands for 'Random Access Memory'. It is a computer storage location that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations. Because it is random and not a CD or Hard Drive the computer is able to access the data much faster. However the RAM requires power to keep the data accessible. if power is lost all the memory is lost too.

How could you get a better RAM?

It depends how much memory you need but a good RAM is a RAM with lots of storage. IT should direct you quickly to your data.
