View Full Version : Dell Inspiron Notebook Memory

11-22-2000, 06:52 AM
I was thinking about buying a notebook from Dell but I had heard that the memory that was compatible could only be purchased through Dell. I swore off Compaq for that exact reason so I want to be sure, before I spend a few thousand dollars, that I can go to my local computer store and upgrade it myself. I don't know too much about laptops yet so your comments are appreciated.

Thanks, Lisa

Most Notebooks you buy are gonna be that way... Laptop ram sucks that way. However, I didn't think that Compaq ram costs that much, and you can order the brand of ram from places like TigerDirect, and PC Connection, as well as online at places like egghead.com. I went to a computer store in Ft. Wayne Indiana, and they had Compaq ram in stock for my laptop, my laptop is a CompUsa. I bought 128 megs for 189 dollars, and sold my 32 stick that came with the pc for 40 dollars used, about 3 weeks after I bought my laptop.
