Looking to buy RAM for R40 2681 - Australia

Looking to buy RAM for three R40 2681 preferably from an Australian seller. I would prefer at least 512MB per computer.

Welcome to the forum!

I don't have any RAM to sell, but are you aware that these will take 2GB in a 2x1GB configuration of PC2100/2700 ?

Just as FYI.

Happy hunting

Really? I was under the impression the maximum was 1GB. That's great news, thanks!

Hereby I confirm that 2x1GB DDR 333MHz RAM works perfectly in my R40 2681 mobile P4 1.9GHz.
Swapfile turned off, only RAM in use. I experience a significant performance improvement.

Good luck to all :-)

This is DDR, not DDR2? Shame, I would send you my 2x1GB DDR2 sticks if that worked for practically nothing -- they aren't worth that much to me anymore ....
