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.
