I am looking to buy and install an extra GB of RAM for my dell inspiron E1505. Do you have any reliable stores to suggest that i buy it from? I am looking to pay around less than $35. Dell sells 1GB RAM for $50.

dell's listing is selling 2 gb for 47.59 or something like that...if your machine is still under warranty i would advise getting the memory from dell, if you don't want to do that, then buy from else where. You need 200 pin SO DIMM DDR2, being DDR2 you have to purchase in twos...so anything on the page below from new egg SHOULD work.

"being DDR2 you have to purchase in twos", Wrong only old RamBus memory, and servers supporting interleaving memory require being installed in matching pairs. However installing the memory in pairs(while not required) is suggested so you get the performance gain of dual channel mode. The E1505 does support 2Gb modules but only supports a max of 2Gb so I would suggest getting 2x1gb sticks for dual channel operation. You can get 2x1Gb sticks on newegg for $30 and I checked corsair's site and they have tested theses on the E1505.
