laptop memory compatibility question
 
hi,

i have 2 laptops, one requires
200-pin SODIMM, PC2700 / 333 MHz,
the other laptop requires
DDR2 200-pin SODIMM, PC2-5300 / 667 MHz.

Are these memory sticks interchangable? Can i put the 333 MHz memory
in the laptop that 'requires' the 667 MHz memory, without damaging the
laptops?

Thanks.

You won't damage it-- but all the memory will run at the slower speed at a
degraded level from what the 667 memory would run. That being said, any
increase in memory will give you a performance bump.

One of these is DDR the other is DDR2. They may not be interchangeble
and may not even fit into the same sockets.
