there is some slight difference, but the boost in performance does not justify the cost.

well, you need see if the laptop will even support pc2700. I know my dell 8500 insipiron laptop will not. pc2100 for me -_-. Another thing is pc2700 laptop memory isnt exactly cheap either.

not sure about amd chips, but for intel chips, if you have a 400mhz fsb, you run at 266mhz (pc2100), 533 for 333(pc2700), 800 for 400mhz(pc3200). i think, but don't take my word on it, pc2700 is compatible and will run at a memory frequency of 266mhz, not 333mhz if you're on a 400mhz fsb.

well as long as the chipset will see the memory then it will be fine. From my point of view as a computer tech for pcclub computers. some will some wont.
