I was browsing to upgrade my x61s (7669) memory. I'm somewhat confused by the conflicting things I read about the memory though.
The lenovo site : http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site. ... 644.html#x
states I can use : PC2-5300 CL5 DDR2 SDRAM 200-pin non-parity SoDIMM
So I looked around and found some nice Kingston Valueram 2*2Gb
particularly partno. KVR667D2S5/2G at a nice 33 euro's per strip.
It satisfies all the conditions stated above and comes with a warranty of 2 years.
When i was at the kingston site to check the details of the memory, i also found a memory configurator tool that could identify the memory based on your system. Here's the link showing the modules that are compatible according to the configurator :

When i checked the stores for these modules, partno KTL-TP667/2G
these cost a hefty 55 euro's a strip.
Here's the kingston link for the strips : http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configu ... L-TP667/2G
So now i'm wondering... Which strips to take...? Did you guys go for the basic valueram or opt for the system specific ram? Can anyone tell me the difference between these different parts???
Just hoping to clarify this before i spend 66 euro's on 4 Gb that won't work in my system
Thanx - Ronald

Kingston works well. OCZ works well too.

By the way, buy.com sometimes will have big deal, my 2 GB memories are only $20 after rebate. But only one rebate per address.
