For Sale – PC2-6400 & PC3-8500 Sodimm memory

Free to a good ( or bad) home..

I’ve had to upgrade laptops to make the Win 10 install in them reasonably useable, and due to how the machines came with and what they support I’ve had to swap some modules out.

Can anyone make use of these?? They were working when removed and should be fine but obviously no warrant on them.

One of 2GB PC2-6400S

One of 2GB PC2-8500S

Two of 1GB PC2-8500S

I’ll even cover UK post but if they help you out please consider donating a few pounds to your favourite charity. Donation is entirely optional, and no I don’t want to know if you do or don’t donate.
