I'm looking at adding some extra sodimm RAM to an old laptop - it currently has 3GB of DDR3 PC3-8500 1066Mhz. - can take up to 2 sticks of 4GB.
Having looked around, I'm figuring that because it's old, it's no longer all that common - so it's a bit pricey given its intended purpose.
I see that this type of RAM is available in Aliexpress at seemingly reasonable prices. I'm surprised at the brands which appear to be available (eg Samsung, etc). Are they legit?
Has anyone had any experience with RAM purchased off AE, or should I stick with repurposed RAM off TM or computer recyclers.
I still use the lappy regularly - it's a dual boot and I use the Linux partition. However, it struggles with anything heavier than Xubuntu these days ...
