    I’m using the “PREMIUM MEMORY” from the Fry’s Outpost site. So far…, sooo good! I’m using my M6811 on battery power, and I see a notable increase in speed (it feels like its plugged in). I’ve always hated to run off of battery power due to the drop in speed. I’m almost afraid to plug it in. This stuff works! I’ll give it two e’s up!

    Can we put PC3200 RAM into these notebooks?
    Will we see a speed increase????

    Thanks,

    Yes you can and you will see a speed increase... but nobody really knows just how much yet. Of course, you will need to change both RAM strips to PC3200 in order for you to run at that speed. If you do it... tell us the benchmark results! :)

    Is it better to the the bigger stick of memory on the inside of the notebook instead of the the outside accessable cover? The stick of 256 inside the M6805 you have to remove the keyboard to get at is. But I believe that is the one also closet to the processor. SO does it make a differece?

    Only if you plan on upgrading the RAM again at a later date...then I'd suggest the bigger on inside so that, if you do upgrade, you need only swap out the accessbile one. Otherwise.. it shouldn't make a difference.

    Be careful, the motherboard might support only PC2700 RAM. I think some research is in order.

    It appears that currently the M6805 is not compatible with ddr400 :-(
