Excuse the dumb question, but....

What am I looking for when I buy a 1G memory stick for my Mini?

What exact specifications?

Is it NOTEBOOK memory?

DESKTOP memory?

Help me out here, I don't want to buy the wrong stuff.

Thanks

Roger

A 1gig PC2700 (DDR333) stick of 184 pin non-ECC non-registered DDR SDRAM DIMM for a desktop (the 168 pins cover the desktop part; so does the DIMM). Nothing below 2.5 is worth the extra money, so CL2.5 or CAS2.5 is good enough, but CL3 and CAS3 will do. (CL and CAS mean the same thing.)

I don't think I've missed anything.

Edit: Check this out.

I know that TigerDirect ships to France, the UK, Germany, and Canada. You didn't really help us out by just saying you need something shipped to a non-US address. What country do you live in?

To use TigerDirect to ship overseas I believe you need to click on the correct flag if you scroll down to the bottom of their main page.

yeah thanks for the input............ Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I've used the search many a time and have not had to post due to me finding the info. That's why my post count is not as high as others.....


I was just saying that those companies that have been quoted to supply the correct memory, the same companies are quoted all the time and IIRC they all don't ship to the UK (tho may have to check)
