Will this be a good upgrade for Samsung N130? Both in terms of Value and Performance as well as it actually working?

Lappy is pc8500 - anyone confirm if this ram will run?

Dont quote me but i think the n130 uses ddr-2, and ddr-3 will not fit in the slot.

Get confirmation first off someone else though, before taking my word for it.

Hero2zer0 is spot on - N130 uses DDR2 200 pin RAM, DDR3 is 204 pin - won't fit!

I have two netbooks that could use this upgrade:

1 - Samsung N210
2 - HP Mini Note 2133

Does anyone know whether this will work in those machines?

Thanks,

Glen

No, both of those use older DDR2 ram.

Run the Crucial scan...

almost all (pos all) netbooks are ddr2 - in many cases you're looking at upping from a standard 1gig to a 2 gig stick in their single slot. In crucial's case they come in at about 24 quid plus vat for the common netbooks for such a chip. Pretty sure this is only a full size laptop option.

acer 521 netbook among other take this type of ram

For netbooks running DDR2 see here.

These 2GB modules certainly seem to be the sweet spot in pricing as every laptop manufacturer ships with at least one. I can wait till 4GB becomes this popular (cheap) before plumping for an upgrade to my 2x2GB system.

I bought this last week after the Kingston ones from PC World expired, I feel I can rely on a Crucial stick more though.

I really appreciate laptop manufacturers putting 2gb of RAM as one stick in one slot so that the other is spare for an easy upgrade. Well done!

4GB sticks seem to be about £35, which is pretty cheap. 8GB is very nice if you need it, but personally I'm waiting for the 8GB sticks to drop in price so I can have 16GB:)

N150 Plus takes DDR3

What applications for a netbook (or indeed any other laptop) require 16 Gb of RAM? Win7 happily runs on 2 Gb value RAM.

I was taking generally, not about netbooks. 8GB really helps if you are juggling light photoshop work with other applications, but can get a bit bogged down with larger or multiple files. Few people need 16GB, but those that do don't have any reasonably priced options at the moment. If an 8GB stick cost a little bit more than double a 4GB stick that would be great, but at the moment its about £1000+ for 2x8GB sticks. Kingston do a 16GB stick for just under £1000, but I'm not sure what laptops it will work in.

Of course when 8GB modules become mass manufactured I expect prices will drop like a stone.

OK I agree. But for most people gigantic quantities of RAM are not needed (2 Gb - or 4 if you must, is generally sufficient).

My T500 says: PC2-8500 1066MHz DDR3 .. in the specs, will these pc3 types work in it? I know it's DDR3, but wondering if the PC3 is down to speed etc. altough, I'm aware if it is, my lappy memory would probably only run at the lower speed (I think lol)

No ddr 3 and ddr 2 are completely different ..

To put this one to bed, the CPU dictates whether your netbook uses DDR2 (200 pin) or DDR3 RAM (204 pin); older machines with a N270 or N450 CPU can only use DDR2, later machines with the N455 or N475 chip will be compatible with DDR3. As the RAM modules have a different number of pins, they will have different size sockets.

numpties sent me a 8gb Sd Card instead of the ram.
