Which is better for my laptop? PC3-14900 or PC3-12800. Does it make a difference?

From above. I just want to know if there's any difference, or if I can just get whichever is cheaper without losing out on performance.

I would check myself, but I have no idea how or where to find out for my specific laptop.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello Saborknight,

 

Thank you for your message.  Both parts are guaranteed to be compatible with your system.  The you would not notice a big difference in performance from the different parts.  PC3-14900 is the fastest but I would recommend PC3-12800.  I would recommend this, as I see that you already have 8GB installed.  The PC3-1288 would be most compatible with your existing memory module. 

 

I hope this answers your question and we do have a great support and guide section on our website that you can see HERE

 

If you do have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask and I would be more than happy to help.
