Install memory in a desktop - YES. Install in a laptop - NO! As far as I have seen (and been told) the way they stuff everything inside a laptop is almost impossible to replicate (without a LOT of experience - not me), so if it didn't come pre installed (which it is likely that it would) you would be best to take it to a PC shop and get them to do it for you....

By PC Store I mean like a Computer shop, or retailer where you would buy your parts - they also do maintenance (for a fee)...
