Thinking of buying an upgrade to laptop currently my laptop states 533
or 667 MHz, the one I am looking at is 800MHz.
I am not bothered about increasing speed but will the laptop operate ok
if I use 800MHz?

It might not be just the speed that is important coud be other things too.
I'd use http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/memory enter details etc... if it's listed I'm not sure they have a section for jurassic laptops ;-)
It is actually a netbook, I only use on hols a couple of times year to
access email and for storing pictures while on hols. I dont need speed
just more storage for pics until I get home.
The RAM in question doubles the capacity to a dare I say 2GB, it is
cheap on ebay and will serve purpose.

Sounds like DDR3 RAM, where 533 would be what was commonly called
PC8500, and 666 would be PC10600. 800 is PC12800.
Faster will *usually* be ok in slower machines as long as you are not

pages - they will normally give a you a "guaranteed" match based on

Yes as long is its the same type of course. It has always been the same in
computers mixed speeds of ram are OK it should just mean that that is the
max speed its been certified for. However some motherboards are a bit
finicky on which slots have matched sticks of ram in them.
This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
I did, which made me wonder if you thought he was suggesting replacement
of the laptop itself.
Since the subject of the post was about RAM and the clock speeds
thereof, I read it to understand he was thinking of buying a RAM upgrade
for his current laptop.
If that is the case, then you comment about GPUs etc does not really
make any sense. However perhaps the OP could clarify?
what I was getting at was the OP was asking about buying RAM
in the expectation that it would give more ?storage space? for Photos
but every comment has been about performance
and you are also mistaking me for someone else as I have made no ?comment
about GPUs etc?
