Got it for what I thought at the time was a decent price around two weeks ago for £418 and no it's dropped again to £375. Bummer!
Anyway I'm thinking about upgrading the memory to 4GB, but what do I get?
I come accross several branded 4GB modules which are as follows:
- Corsair 4GB, 200-Pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800MHz) - (VS4GSDS800D2) - £63.76
Crucial 4GB, 200-Pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800MHz) - (CT51264AC800) - £80-39
Crucial 4GB, 200-Pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 (667MHz) - (CT51264AC667) - £82.30
Patriot 4GB, 200-Pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800MHz) - (PSD24G8002S) - £66.24
G.Skill 4GB, 200-Pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 (667MHz) - (F2-5300CL5S-4GBSQ) £71.54
The prices listed above are from independant retailers as opposed to the manufacturers store price.
Also found on a certain auction site:
Still a bit more expensive than across the pond in the US I guess, but these seem to be the best delivered prices I can find for branded modules from known online retailers in the UK.
I did find some "KomputerBay" branded modules which were cheaper, but seem to get mixed reviews.
I understand that some of the above are in fact "PC2-6400 (800MHz)", but can I assume this won't impact on performance and the module will just operate at the lower speed?
Also, if anyone knows of a different reliable brand and model # available in the UK, feel free to add them here.
