Just did the crucial scanner on my system and this is what it recommended for my laptop: http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=2C9C1C53A5CA7304

However, I found this on play.com: http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3317272/PNY-PC2700-1GB-333MHz-DDR-200pin-SODIMM-Laptop-Memory/Product.html# , is it the same thing as its a lot cheaper?!

Thanks in advance

The play.com one is the same specification as the Crucial one. However, PNY is near the bottom end of the memory market - if you're lucky it will work and last you a couple of years. :roll:

However, if your laptop uses DDR, it's probably at least 3 years old so the PNY memory may well last as long as the laptop. At that price differential, it's probably not really that bad a buy though, personally, I wouldn't touch PNY memory with a bargepole.
There is very little difference between memory running at the default specifications, as i doubt you will be looking to over clocking the cheap stuff will be fine for your needs.
Cheers guys, will go for the cheap one, need more RAM cheap as, especially for FM2009 coming out :thumbsup:
How has this just gone up to £32.99 now that I want to order it?! Doubled in price!!!
