Looking to add 4 GB RAM to my partner's HP ProBook 4535s (she has 1x 4 GB inside already, with 1x slot available).
 
It supports PC3-10600 (1333 MHz) and PC3-12800 (1600 MHz), according to the Crucial System Scanner.
 
The least I can spend on the 4 GB module, the better (as long as it works of course, and comes from a reputable retailer in case I have any trouble with the module).
 
I've found the following module from Amazon: Crucial 4GB SODIMM Spectek Select Memory Module (£15.33 total cost).
 
It's almost £20 cheaper than any other store/module, so I'm guessing I'm missing something and that it's not actually designed for such a laptop.
 
If it's fine, then I'm glad, because Crucial and Amazon are both trustworthy in my books.

That link is for a DDR2 stick, not a DDR3.

That link is for a DDR2 stick, not a DDR3.

Amazon states: "DDR3 SDRAM" in the Technical Details yet the description says it's DDR2 SDRAM, silly Amazon!

 

I knew it was too good to be true.

 

Cheers :)

Plus "Usually dispatched within 1 to 4 months."

That looks a bit weird as first off it's diatched in 1-4 months, and secondly, the product description talks about ddr2 and ddr3 so I wouldn't trust it. This one looks better: http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B0061RO5H0/

 

Edit: damn you all...
