"difference between TravelMate 330 and 340"

I bought 330 end of last year, and 340 this April, for both of the series, the appearence and price is brilliant. the Travelmate 330, the system is very stable, but the speed of harddisk is not fast enough comparing to the CPU speed, in general, this kind of product is successful, so i went to buy 340 series when it came into the market, but after using it, i don't feel satisfied, the mouse is often dead after re-booting, and system is not very stable comparing to the 330 series, in my opinon, i might be the problem of main board. the speed of mainboard is not good for the cpu's speed. and in 340 series, the size of vidio memory is still 2.5M, same as 330 series. and the RAM is still 64M, not good enough for PIII CPU when it is running some software. but that is good enough for home's using.
my subject is computer science, when i am going to install linux on it, the vidio memory is the biggest problem, no 2.5M option, so i couldn't install. generally, the TravelMate series is good products,
but still have some obviously problem. and after using these two products, i can say 330 series is better than 340 series.
