    HP Compaq Laptop Memory

    Hi All,

    I am trying to find somewhere on the high street to buy laptop memory but am drawing a blank at anywhere other than PC World.

    According to crucial i need the following memory for my Compaq nx9105:

    1GB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR PC2700 memory module

    Has anyone got any ideas on the cheapest place to go on the highstreet? I am located in London.

    Many Thanks,
    Garthus

    Old memory type, most shops will not stock it anymore and if they do you will pay a premium for it.

    Where about are you located?

    Maplin?

    I am in west hampstead, the reason for speed is I have been let down by a eBay seller so want to get 2 * 1 gig sticks today ideally

    You are unlikely to find a shop with reasonable prices, but you can try

    ]The British Computer Fair, on today until 5pm at Tottenham Court Road (opposite Habitat)

    And if you are serious about wasting money have a look at ]YoYo Tech. They have some Samsung modules for the outrageous price of £38.27 each.

    Computer Exchange (Goodge Street) shows no stock, but it may be worth going in and asking them to check the stock for the London stores, as the website's stock levels are 24hours out of date.

    I paid £23 delivered for my unbranded Samsung 1GB modules last year and thought that was expensive.

    Personally I suggest you keep scavenging eBay for some well priced modules or get comfortable with the idea of buying a new laptop, that takes DDR2 memory.

    Thanks for the assistance - its much appreciated.

    I have found the ram at PC World for £36 - so might go with that as a safe option. You are correct, I might end up buying a new laptop rather then breathing life into this old one. But to be honest this one does all I need and it just needs the ram.

    If I am going to be spending £75 on ram its probably still more cost efficient than a new laptop (am I justifying myself here)

    Its been a long time since I went to a computer fair and last time i was disappointed - do you think the price will be significantly cheaper - or is it worth going to tried and tested PCWorld?

    Thanks for the help,
    Garthus

    Just got back from the computer fair - bought 2 * 1gb sticks for £30 each - very pleased, they are installed and working!

    Nice one. :thumbsup:
