Hi ocsurf,

Really take a look at http://www.kingston.com or http://www.crucial.com
Both have memmory that will be 100% compatible with your computer and will be much cheaper than buying memmory directly at HP.
I don't know about crucial, but kingston has a lifetime warranty.

Greetings,

LucF

There should be no problems with mixing RAM.  Only in rare circumstances is this a problem.  HP is just trying to make $$$! ;-)
