Your Latitude D530 System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 2

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

    Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Dell Latitude D530 System:

    Crucial had the most cost-effective memory upgrade I could find when compared to known name-brand products that have a comparably impressive reputation as criucial. The whole process was as easy as it gets: (1) Finding the proper memory at their web site; (2) Purchasing it; (3) Prompt shipping; (4) Memory installation; and (5) Performance results. You can't go wrong with Crucial!

      Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Dell Latitude D530 System:

      Had some older model computers about 2-4 years old. After I upgraded the RAM on one, the speed improved so much that I was compelled to upgrade to rest of the computers in my office and I am quite happy with the results. Faster upload of internet pages as well as programs working better and not hanging up.
