Default 266/333 differences

Looking to buy a laptop on the cheap for school, storing things etc.

My question is, in a laptop, how much difference would be seen between 512MB of pc2100 and 256MB of pc2700. I'm looking more towards the 2100 just because of the extra ram and running XP etc. Would the performance be about equal, or would the 512 of a lower speed be better of 256 at a higher speed?


Quick answers please (looking to buy asap)

the RAM speed = bus speed but id get the 512 because xp+256 MB RAM = not great when heaps of stuff is installed
