My sister has an old laptop Acer Aspire one KAV60 (hlz-kav60(b)) - It only supports 2GB of RAM as maximum capacity.
The laptop has only one slot. Currently it has 1GB as follows:

* Elpida 1GB 1Rx8 PC2-6400S-666 (made in Taiwan)

It is a DDR2 with 800Mhz (I did do a research on Google).

Now, the reason of this post. In the Computer store has the 2 following available:

  • Memoria Ram SODIMM DDR2 2GB/ 800MHz Golden
  • Memoria Ram SODIMM DDR2 2GB/ 800MHz Casper
They are made in China - which one I should buy? and why?

The laptop is going to be used with Linux Peppermint 32 bits for Client purposes, such as SSH and Web Console (Jenkins)

Got links to the memory you're looking at?

I wouldn't buy anything that's not branded due to concerns of reliability and moreover the cause for downtime due to said unreliability. You should look into a branded(Crucial or Mushkin or G.Skill or Kingston or even Elpida) 2GB DDR2-800MHz 1.8v SO-DIMM stick of ram. If you're located in the U.S.A or Europe, you can look for the kit I've mentioned off of Ebay.

Not yet - but I requested just in case photos of the products in their packages to do a research with the exact codes in the web.

The products are "Golden" and "Casper" ... here does not arrive memory ram DDR2 based on known manufacturers as Kingston (because DDR2 is old technology, here arrives DDR 3 and 4) - but is possible get DDR2 based on known manufacturers but based on second use. I am assuming it is a risk for me.

Tomorrow I will share the exact codes.
