Am wanting to upgrade my laptop memory so i can install Windows 7, i have an Acer Aspire 3680 and don't fully understand what memory i need

Would this be suitable?


Any other cheaper/better/bigger offers about?

Anyone know how much it can take or how many slots there are?

Thanks in advance


go to crucial.com and run their memory checker - it will tell you what you can have

Download ]CPU-Z, it'll tell you what type of memory you've got, how many slots and how they're currently filled.

It looks like at least some Aspire 3680s took DDR2 so it may work, but it's best to check what your particular machine has as Acer as well known for selling lots of different configurations under the same name.
