I have a Compaq Presario M2000 notebook. I went to Crucial.com to order some new memory and their website recommended the wrong thing. Crucial said I needed PC2100 266mhz memory when in fact I later discovered that my laptop can use up to PC2700 333mhz memory.

Since I went from 256 (1 pc2700 chip) to 768 megs (2 pc2100 chips - 256+512) of RAM, of course I saw some major perfomance improvements.

My question is if I replaced my PC2100 memory with PC2700 memory, would I really notice a difference big enough to warrant the replacement?
