Very nice specs for some laptop specific SODIMM's indeed!
oh sure now you tell me, i just bought kingston hyper x yesterday :(
just return that hyper x. profit!
Sweet if I had a laptop this would be on my short list for an upgrade, along with a SSD.
Those look great, might have to upgrade the RAM in my Sony vaio now :P
Dropping some of these higher quality better performance DDR3 SODIMMs into any decent notebook / laptop is def going to be a user noticeable experience, and an upgrade worth considering [depends as usual on situation & needs]
I'm rocking the hyper x in my laptop, it's good stuff. I agree with @Teemo, just return it if you just ordered it. Or just wait for some 16gig kits 🙂
These vengeance kits look awesome though, deff a great upgrade option!
