Dual-channel : Maximized dual-channel performance requires SODIMMs of the same size and speed in both memory slots.
NOTE: * Models with Mobile Intel GLE960 Express Chipset use this memory at a maximum memory speed of 533 MHz. Models with Mobile Intel GME965 or Mobile Intel PM965 Express Chipset use this memory at a maximum memory speed of 667 MHz.
NOTE: Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. If you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed. Full availability of 4 GB or more of memory requires Windows Vista Business 64-bit or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, the amount of usable memory is dependent upon your configuration, so that above 3 GB all memory may not be available due to system resource requirements.
