WTD: Cheap DDR RAM for laptop

I'm trying to breathe some life in to an old laptop, but it seems to be bottlenecked by the lack of RAM...luckily there's a spare slot so I should be able to do something about it.

Any size will be considered, I don't want to pay much at all really so 256 might be best. The Crucial Scanner showed that the current stick is PC2700, but I think I'm right in thinking it might take faster RAM but just run it at a lower speed.

if you only need a 256MB chip you shouldn't pay more than £3.50 delivered. Lots of ebay items end at this price and less. Several at 99p with £2 delivery the last few days...good luck.

Thanks for that, that's around the price I was hoping to pay as it's only a secondary computer to browse internet etc. I'll check on ebay tomorrow, there aren't any left ending today.

no point in adding faster ram, it might cause problems and even if the bios is set to compensate it will only allow it to be used at the same speed as existing ram.
if the existing is removable u could try replacing the whole lot but rarely makes any diff and the 256mb might be the limit per stick, i came across a compaq like that
