Nice collection of tips!

But it should be mentioned, that increasing the RAM is only reasonable if the OS would swap without it. Increasing the RAM without really needing the additional capacity slightly reduces the battery runtime (especially if a 2nd module has to be inserted) since the additional memory needs additional energy.
