I want to upgrade the RAM on IBM Thinpad laptop T43 from 1GB to 2GB. I know this laptop has two slots one behind the keyboard and one on the back of the computer. The slot on the back of the laptop is empty so I know I can put max of 1Gb in that slot. My question I would like to purchase a cheaper RAM stick from ebay and curious if this is a goog idea and what spec numbers should I be concerned with. I did a scan and it recommended this type of stick from the company.

1GB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 memory module
CT492740
Module Size: 1GB
Package: 200-pin SODIMM
Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300
Specs: DDR2 PC2-5300 CL=5 Unbuffered NON-ECC DDR2-667 1.8V 128Meg x 64

HYNIX / Dell 2GB ( 2 x 1GB ) PC2-5300 200-Pin DDR2-667 Laptop Memory SODIMM
Brand: HYNIX
Model: HYMP112S64CP6-Y5
Module Size: 1GB each
Package: 200-Pin SODIMM
Specs: DDR2-667 PC2-5300 CL5 Unbuffered NON-ECC


The last spec is from the buyer that I would like to purchase. I think it is the same can someone verify if I am reight or wrong! Thanks!!!!!

This computer doesn't support dual channel. The maximum size of module is 1GB per channel. That modules should be fine. Make sure that there is a return policy in case it is DOA. Ebay can be risky.
