Soooo what speed should I get for this bad sally? It's just my spare laptop so not going to spend a fortune on it. Currently there is no RAM installed on this machine. I took it out and put it to better use in my Alienware m17x. So now I am looking for a ddr3 4gb stick but there are so many speeds available I don;t know which one to get or even if it will be supported??? Looking forward to your prompt reply.

    You answered you're own question. But buying faster ram isn't going to hurt a thing as long as you buy the same type, DDR3. :)
