Hi:

 

What model processor does your notebook have?

 

What speed memory is in there now?

 

Use the free utility that I zipped up and attached below that will show you the memory info and the speed the memory is running at.

You're very welcome.

 

You would want the DDR4-2400 MHz memory chip.

 

That is the fastest speed your notebook's processor can run the memory at, according to the specs from Intel.

You're very welcome.

 

If the 2666 MHz memory is far cheaper, then you may as well get that one.   

 

It will just downclock to 2400 MHz to match the speed of the processor.
