Don't have a clue about computers but think I need to get better aquainted with them so have just bought my first laptop. I have been told that I should upgrade the memory by people I work with but they are stumped as to what I should get to put into it. The spec of it at the moment is here VGN-FS215S The guys I work with don't know why it is PC2700 DDR and not DDR2 running at a faster speed being as the laptop has 533Mhz FSB.
Is it because this model came out before DDR2 or is there some other reason? I am planning to put two 512MB modules into it but need help deciding what would be best. Would the higher speed DDR2 be a waste of time or should it be compatable? Basically what is the best for me to get?
Thanks in advance to anyone who trie to help with this.
