mem upgrade for acer 6360S

By T Mike ·
my gal has a acer aspire #6360S & she wants to get a memory upgrade to 128.
We tried crusin/surfing thru a couple of online sellers and are totally 'bedazzled'
...Just how "case sensitive" are these things-None of them say Acer 'econo replacement'like at the car parts store(just a pun attempt)..acer wants 60-$150+....we see mem advertised for 20-$45,at the online places & want to save the cash- but do not want to hurt the PC..
...Are they plug & Play
...if I just had a clue what to get I'dorder the darn thing & have it shipped...
so here we are

Of the big 3 (Crucial, Kingston, and PNY)
only Crucial listed a model close to yours
(a 6361)
That model looks like it uses "standard" SDRAM DIMMs.

I put "standard" in quotes because not all DIMMs function in all motherboards.

I would use either Crucial www.crucial.com
or a reputable local dealer.
What you want, is someone who will help you if the memory doesn't work in your PC.

Memory is suppossed to be "Plug-and Play", but often isn't.

While you are not likely to damage the PC, I have seen system files become corrupted from non-compatable RAM.

128MB SDRAM DIMM stick should work though you could always pull your current stick(s) and take it to your local dealer to match if you want.
You shouldn't have to pay much more than 50$ for 128MB's.
