        [...], I installed the memories by myself for the first time with success. another thing that is worth mentioning is that the system in place allows them to identify your computer and make the recommendations appropiate for your needs. no guess work required here

          When I went to install the new memory, I noticed my Sony Vaio came with the same brand memory as original equipment. I can't imagine a better recommendation than that.
