Now both come with 2x2GB of RAM, and unlike T/W500, these still use DDR2 RAM but at 800Mhz. So now I am in a hunt for 4GB DDR2 sticks again to get them to at least 6GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, seems like the deals on eBay currently are HORRIBLE! The cheapest one I found before customs and tax is C$57 and that's only one in stock! I paid that much for a pair before this pandemic! The rest of the listings are all shady RAM sticks!
Local deals for these computer products are mostly horrible too because ppl hoarded these things out in the pandemic and that many sellers don't wanna meet up too!
So being fed up with the prices, what I think I will do is to order these RAM sticks from Taobao and get my relatives in China to send them here instead. The prices in China for 4GB sticks are still only like about C$25-30 a piece and this is from some of the highest rated sellers.
Moreover the prices for the likes of Q9000, Q9100 and QX9300 seem also much cheaper on Taobao also from some of the best sellers. Unfortunately it seems like these won't work on any of those Latitudes and I have to swap the motherboard and heatsink with a M4400 one to get it working on that E6500.
Before I place the order and get the parcel posted to my place, I am wondering is anyone in Canada (or even the US if postage allows) interested in getting potentially cheaper deals for these Core 2 gen CPUs and DDR2 RAM sticks?
