Just be aware that on a lot of laptops if you have 1gb already chances are it is 2x512mb and will take up the two slots already. Therefore to upgrade to 2gb you will need to purchase 2x1gb and sell the other 2x 512mb. You can't install one 1gb and a 512mb, memory usually has to be installed in matching pairs on a laptop.

Do check first though as there are sometimes exceptions..

Added delivery, and price to title in OP. Please try to include these :)
#3
For a pound more this might be a better option as it has lifetime warranty:

Great post but I think I'll go for this one: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/123910 (it's faster) I guess it depends on your laptop though.

Is this right?

I thought this was recommended, rather than a necessity.

you are right. its a recommendation if you want to benefit from the dual channel

Dual-channel setups can offer significant performance gains over standard single-channel setups. The key to taking full advantage of dual-channel memory operation is installing a pair of matching memory modules (i.e., same size, speed, etc.) at a time. The modules must be identical to each other for dual-channel operation to perform correctly.

After all the purpose of a memory upgrade most of the time is to get a performance improvement.

That's not what you said though, you implied that the RAM just wouldn't work. I find that not to be the case 99% of the time.

To others, going for faster RAM than your Laptop is rated for won't really provide you with any real gains, it will still run at the speed your laptop's FSB is set to run at. So if that's PC4200 and you put in PC4300 it will run at PC4200 speeds anyway.

And yes, I think it would be foolish to go for the Ebuyer stuff when you could get the Corsair for a smidgen more.

Well to be fair mr pedantic I said that you would probably have 2x512mb (or two smaller ram boards) in your laptop, so to watch for that. I NEVER said they would not work. You should install memory in matching pairs, so this is good advice.

I consider a memory upgrade to be a performance enhancer, I think many others do to.

I also said that there would be exceptions. I hope you are happy now?? :x

It went from £20 to over £30 as the OP did not add postage etc and there are other memory upgrades that cost around this or less.

No, you said:

So you either worded that really badly or you're going back on what you said.

It's right there, hardly pedantic.

Either way I don't care, I'm just pointing out to others that this is not the case (whether you meant it that way or not). Also, dual-channel brings a nice but minor gain in comparison to doubling/tripling your memory (e.g. going from 512MB to 1.5GB by adding a 1GB stick).

Yep, voted cold because the the price increased and the Coarsair stuff is available for little more.

I have just altered the OP to show the true cost inc delivery is £25:81

It's still good advice.
