Default where can i buy the best ram? - 03-26-2010, 11:57 PM

i feel like im asking a question that everyone knows the answer to, and i dont know the answer. i want to upgrade the ram in my soon-to-arrive 10v, and im pretty sure that i need to buy 200 pin laptop ddr2 ram. ive looked all over the place, and im so overwhelmed! there are soooo many options, i cant keep them straight. so can someone direct me to the best ram currently available?

hello? i am still looking and i found one made by crucial on newegg, and it looks good (i guess). part of it is that i dont what to look for besides the "2gb ddr2" search terms

Any of these that are PC2-5300 (667MHz) or higher is fine. Make sure that it is notebook memory and a 200-pin SODIMM.

Here are the two main sources in the U.S.:
RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, flash cards, SSD at

Prices are ok, but quality is very high. You can get a price from those and then shop around.
