RAM upgrade confusion
by Mindstyle06 - 2/10/13 2:12 AM
I have 2 laptops, Toshiba Satellite A505-S6005 purchased at Bestbuy and Acer Aspire 5740, purchased in India (When my Dell Studio died all of a sudden)
Satellite has 4GB of RAM and Aspire has 3GB of RAM. Both have only 2 slots. If I understood correctly, both the laptops have DDR3-8500F RAM (533MHz). Crucial website suggestion for upgrade RAM is 204-pin SODIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 or DDR3 PC3-8500 modules.
I am totally confused. They don't seem like to be the same as the one already installed in the laptops. Most likely Crucial is correct with their suggestion but I just wanted a human expert to confirm and a recommendation on which module I should go with (i.e. PC3-8500 or PC3-10600).
Also any recommendation on brand? Newegg has good reviews for G-Skill, Crucial and Kingston but (G-Skill PC3-10600 is little cheaper, with a good review).

Many thanks in advance.
