Laptop Memory Categories


There is a massive choice available from well-known brands such as Corsair, Kingston and Crucial. When you are looking at speeds the memory modules are usually differentiated by type and clock rating. A typical example would be DDR3 1600MHz which is faster than DDR3 1066MHz.

Different capacities are also available with the most common being either 2, 4, 8 or 16GB modules. In many laptops the memory is stored in two slots. So a machine with 8GB of memory probably has 2x4GB modules. Other machines will have just one slot and a single module of memory.

When choosing your memory and before you upgrade check your laptop specification as it will indicate the maximum memory that can be installed. Subject to these limits memory modules with more speed allied with a higher capacity will result in a more powerful and efficient computer.
