    I just checked RAM, but I'm using DDRIII 2x4GB 1333 from another laptop.
    The BIOS shows 8GB RAM installed, just like Windows.

    Is RAM: 2Rx8 P3-8500S-07-10-F2 worse than DDRIII 4GB-1333?
    Can I normally use 1333 instead of 1066? Will it be any difference?

    1066 is max on this laptop, so, as long as system detects 8GB of ram it's all good, because it will automatically set ram speed to 1066Mhz no matter if its 1333 or 1600(like mine) sticks and in the end it will have no difference.

    "Is RAM: 2Rx8 P3-8500S-07-10-F2 worse than DDRIII 4GB-1333?"
    P3-8500 means its DDR3-1066 sticks, it would be slower sticks than DDR3-1333 but as already mentioned this laptop can run stable RAM at 1066Mhz only, so they will have no difference in this laptop(not accounting possibly different latency) as 1333 RAM sticks still will be clocked at 1066.

    While its possible to overclock RAM to 1333 with few software combination, system becomes unstable, so it's not worth it(did that myself but scraped that idea because of instability)
