    Both Crucial and Kingston are highly reputable makers of RAM. In this case, go for the Kingston, since its cheaper .

    Good thing about Crucial is if you order it via their configurator (vs ordering it from say NewEgg) then it is guaranteed to work in the system you ordered it for. I have had one instance where Kingston RAM wouldn't work in a Dell (but worked fine in another laptop). But, agree, both are high quality.
    Acer Aspire 1410 - Acer Aspire 3810 - Acer AO 532H - Asus N81Vp - Dell XPS 1530 - Dell XPS 1640 - Dell Studio 1555 - H-P tm2t - Gateway P-6860FX - Sony Vaio CW (Red) Slowly, sadly, getting out of the laptop business iPhone and HTC Desire are much easier to carry around.

    Doesn't matter as much in desktops as in laptops because you aren't pushing/overclocking laptop memory.

    From my experience, Crucial has offered me a slightly better service overall. The delivery on all the crucial RAM I have purchased have been next day, while the RAM I purchased from Kingston took a bit longer to deliver (most likely the retailer's fault, since I usually purchase Crucial RAM off Crucial's own own website, while Kingston relies on retailers, and some retailers aren't very good when it comes to delivery).

    Brand differential is getting closer and closer...not much to differentiate high end vs. middle of the road. Very competitive business...
