also the computer uses PC2-5300 can i use PC2-6400 instead? 667 and 800mhz ram is close in price i think
Really depends on your laptop and how much memory it can actually take advantage of. Certain memory will work while others may not. Yes you can use faster memory, but your laptop may just downclock it.
