Default Question about ram.

I do not know who makes good ram for laptops. I am sure a lot of the better brands like OCZ and Crucial and Corsair make good ram for both laptops and desktops. My question it how well is G.Skill ram? I am looking at

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Laptop Memory Model F2-5300CL5S-2GBSK - Laptop Memory

I also need some good 1gb (1x1gb) DDR for my dads Dell Inspirion 1000 from 2002ish. All help is appreciated. Thanks.

G. Skill has a place among OCZ, Crucial, and Corsair. They make great memory modules. Whether it be low or high performance.

Does the heat spreader on that particular ram modular actually work? First time I have seen it on laptop ram. I know laptops get a bit hot and wonder if it work?

First time I've seen heatspreaders on laptop memory too. They're not necessary on RAM unless you are heavily overclocking them.

I wonder if there would be fitting issues in a laptop with sticks that have heatspreaders.

according to the reviews on new egg. Some laptops they do some they don't. On the Eee Pc they don't and that is what I have. Hmm... Is there any certain 2gb stick you could recommend to me? I think I will just go with a corsair or ocz. Thanks for the help B1.

Default Re: Question about ram.

I would recommend these Corsairs:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Laptop Memory Model VS2GSDS667D2 - Laptop Memory
Can't go wrong with them.
