Compaq Memory (C502US)

Recommended Posts

Just received a C502US notebook and I want to upgrade the memory to 2GB. Any suggestions on "decent" ram. Not looking for a world beater, I don't do any gaming on this machine.

when you are dealing with specific OEM's like Compaq/HP laptops, it's almost always best to find out what is their recommended memory (laptops can be VERY finicky about RAM).

 

My advice to everyone is always "find out what types of memory the mfg says works, then ask the major mem companies, ESPECIALLY Crucial, and they'll all quote you RAM that is 3x as expensive ONLY because it is 'recommended' by the mfg...then find that SAME memory from Crucial or elsewhere that is normally priced"

 

thats a long way of saying "find the same memory that is specific to your laptop but doesn't have the 'recommended' tag so it doesn't cost 3x as much"

 

maybe there's no short way to say such a thing haha
