New HP Mini 110-3135dx - Memory Upgrade?

I just picked up a new HP Mini 110-3135dx from Best Buy the other day.  I love it so far, however its a little sluggish and I think boosting the Ram to 2gb may do the trick.  I upgraded it to has Windows 7 Premium, 32bit.

  

I'm pretty sure I need a 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2.

  

Has anyone done this before?

  

Any bias on brands?  Best Buy seems looks to sell Kingston brand but it's $84.99

Can I get it cheaper somewhere else? 

Thanks in advance!

Adgjqetuo, I am sorry to say that the maximum amount of memory supported by HP is 1GB.  Here are the 'Product Specifications' for the computer.  Look at the section titled 'Memory Max' to see what I said is correct.

Hi old_geekster thanks for the reply. I know the manual states 1gb max however there have been several reports of people upgrading to 2gb with no issues anyway. See the below link:

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-Notebook-PC-questions/2-GB-Memory-upgrade-for-HP-Mini-110-1025DX/...

I just want sure if what I found above at best buy was what they were referencing? Is the 800 mhz acceptable? And if I could get it cheaper anywhere else.

You can upgrade to 2GB of memory but at this moment, not all DDR3 memory is accepted by the new Intel's N455 processor...You will need to order it from HP Part Surfer... Here is the link for the same ... http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=615863-001

 

There is another forum thread, where user have been able find particular memory module sold by Crucial that is working with HP Mini 210... Here is link for the same http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=C3C1FEA3A5CA7304

Hi,

 

I'm a little confused - the specs on my HP Mini 110-3135dx show that it comes standard with 1gb DDR2 memory.  That link shows DDR3 memory.  Does it not matter then?

Re: New HP Mini 110-3135dx - Memory Upgrade?

I have a HP Mini 110-3150CA  - And I have watched several videos on youtube and there is upgrades to 2GB... I'd be curious how it works out for the user with the  HP Mini 110-3135dx and how would I know which RAM I need for my machine...being a HP Mini 110-3150CA?

 

 

Thank you
