Hi, I'm not completely new to this whole upgrading thing, and well I need to upgrade the ram on my laptop. I'm pretty sure i've found the right stick, but i just want to check if this is really correct. This may not be the stick i'm getting but i narrowed down my search results so that they all came up to be the same, here it is.

It might be the right one for somebody's laptop, but without knowing your make and model, it's kind of hard to say

You can add a gig of memory. I used http://www.crucial.com/ to find the correct one

Ya i was intending on adding a gig, not 512, I don't get it though, why does the one you showed say pc3200, i don't think my laptop is compatible with that.

Crucial guarantees their memory If it doesn't work, you send it back. That said, yes it will work. Kingston recommends this DDR 2700 for 20 dollars more, plus shipping. Your call
