Default RAM for dell vostro a90 - 04-21-2009, 02:08 AM

I just ordered the dell vostro a90 same as the mini with half a gig of RAM instead of 1gb for $199 off of dell.com. I was wondering does would this laptop be able to use this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ords%29&Page=2 or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820134513 memory i found at newegg?

from all reports the only difference between the two is the black cosmetic features on the A90. either of those should be fine.

The Vostro A90 and the Mini 9 are exactly the same, except for minor cosmetic differences (as saltatory said). The Vostro/Mini take DDR2 SO-DIMMs, up to 2GB. The OS can only run the RAM at 533mhz (DDR2-4200), but it will accept faster RAM and simply slow it down. I'd recommend getting 2GB if you can afford it, it really helps the system be snappy.


Dell Mini 9 - Obsidian Black | Mac OS X 10.5.6 | 2 GB CAS3 Kingston HyperX RAM | 64 GB RunCore SSD | BIOS A04 | BlueTooth | 1.3MP Webcam
