Upgrade Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-155 to 2GB RAM

I wish to upgrade a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-155 laptop from its current 1GB RAM to 2GB Crucial RAM. The laptop's specifications are given here: http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/jsp/S...

I see from those specifications that the laptop is designed for DDR2-667 Ram.

Crucial sells two compatible upgrade kits:
  • DDR2-667, CL=5;
  • DDR2-800, CL=6.

    It seems to me that of these two upgrade kits, the first kit would run slightly faster on the L300-155 than the second, because both will presumably be capped at DDR2-667 core speed (see above), but the second kit has more latency.

    However, Crucial's Memory Advisor tool recommends the second kit.

    So, which of us is correct - me, or the machine? :)

    Get the cheaper one. You will never ever notice any difference. :-)

    The price is the same, so please could you advise which will be faster, even if the difference will be small?

    I'm still at a loss to know which would be faster. Can anyone shed more light? Thanks.
