It really depends on your laptop. If you give us the make and model, we can help give you the memory options that are available for your laptop.

Go to http://www.crucial.com/ and use their memory configurator. It'll tell you everything that you need to know.

You can use the info to shop elsewhere for memory - but their memory is lifetime guaranteed, comes with installation instructions, is reasonably priced, and they have the best service that I've seen.
