Notebook Memory Question


Notebook Memory Question

I have an Acer Aspire 1355LC Notebook with 512MB of memory. (2x256MB - no free slots)
I want to upgrade my machine so things run a little quicker. (I only have shared graphics memory Sad )
According to a Crucial memory scan, I need 200 pin SODIMM DDR PC2700 memory.

Now the muppet question! Smiley Do I have to buy machine specific memory, or can I go and get generic memory as long as it meets the spec above?
I know with desktop memory it's dead easy. As long as it's the same spec then no problem etc, but with notebooks I get the impression that it's a little more specific?

Any ideas? Also, any decent websites I could buy off? :lol:

Notebook Memory Question

200 pin SODIMM is a standard notebook memory format, so generic memory should be fine. Memory is a commodity product so prices tend not to vary that much between retailers. I find are pretty good, if you use the Crucial memory selector from the dabs site they will guarantee that it will be compatible.
