Default Memory upgrade question for Inspiron 6000 laptop.

I wanted to know if the kingston KVR533D2S4/512 is also compatible with the inspiron 6000? I am asking because there is another model Kingston KTD-INSP6000A/512 thats made especially for dell laptops but it costs 10 bucks more. Anyone tried these?

IIRC, you have to buy Dell-brand memory for some Dells. I'm not sure about your specific model, but i think you can get away with non-Dell brand. call up cust. service and ask

Dell DOES NOT use proprietary RAM as of the last time I checked. You just need to check the Dell website to see what kind of RAM it uses, and then feel free to go to Newegg or somewhere else and buy RAM for it.
