I want to upgrade the memory on my machine by myself, but before I open it up, I don't know which items will be compatible with it.

Everest says:
Field Value
Motherboard Properties
Motherboard ID <DMI>
Motherboard Name IBM 2366CA1

Front Side Bus Properties
Bus Type Intel NetBurst
Bus Width 64-bit
Real Clock 100 MHz (QDR)
Effective Clock 400 MHz
Bandwidth 3200 MB/s

Memory Bus Properties
Bus Type DDR SDRAM
Bus Width 64-bit
Real Clock 133 MHz (DDR)
Effective Clock 267 MHz
Bandwidth 2133 MB/s


Chipset Bus Properties
Bus Type Intel Hub Interface
Bus Width 8-bit
Real Clock 67 MHz (QDR)
Effective Clock 267 MHz
Bandwidth 267 MB/s

Is that means I can use either DDR or SDRAM?
And what about the MHZ? is there a limit there? or whatever comes with the memory is good?

Splendid
I'd check the Thinkpad web site to find out exactly what your notebook needs. It *seems* that you probably need DDR-267 or faster RAM, probably in a SODIMM type module, probably unbuffered.
BTW, DDR is a type of SDRAM.
