View Full Version : 144-pin SDRAM PC100 - what would you pay?

Thinking of putting another 256MB of 144-pin SDRAM PC100 RAM in my 1-yr old [Compaq Presario 14XL447] laptop. I have seen it advertised for $197 +GST. Is that good? Should I avoid 'bargains' and go for name brands or does it all come out of the same factory in Taiwan anyway?

Or should I wait and get it in Aussie - I am going to Melbourne for a week in July.

Hi Tane

Try $150.00 incl GST at Tastech for 256MB 144 pin sdram. Be carefull with listed ram prices, they can change without notice.

As above you need to confirm the price.

My understanding is that you need special compaq brand ram for compaq assembled computers.
This might well mean that you have to pay a premium, especially since most ram makers are now making DDR.
