A friend has given me one of these (http://www.acersupport.com/notebook/html/tm243lc_specs.html) to rebuild for her daughter. It has 256Mb of PC2100 CL2.5 RAM, so I was wondering if newer laptop RAM like this (http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=229571340) would work, as it's considerably cheaper than the older RAM seems to be?

Unfortunately no.

DDR2 RAM will never work in a DDR slot.

Your best bet would be to look on TradeMe for cheaper stuff

Any of these will work :)
