G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ 2x4GB DDR3 Laptop  - G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ 2x4GB DDR3 Laptop

If you have been paying attention to the computer industry, you will know DRAM pricing goes up and down like... well, DRAM pricing. Okay, a better comparison is probably like gas prices. While I am not any credible oil market expert by a long shot, sometimes you can't just help it to wonder things like, why is the pump price exactly the same when oil is less than $100 a barrel and $150 a barrel? Why does the local gas station's numbers goes up overnight when there is a hurricane off some random place no one has ever heard of, but for some reason it never goes back down when Middle East countries increases oil production the next day? And the list goes on and on. DRAM pricing is pretty much like the same thing, except the good news for us is, it goes down rather than up most of the time. For example, when we reviewed the G.SKILL F3-8500CL7D-8GBSQ 2x4GB SODIMM kit back in December 2009, the price tag hovered around a hefty $400 at most online retailers. A year and a half later, the same kit sells for less than sixty bucks. With that in mind, let's move straight into our review today. What we have here at APH Networks is the G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ 2x4GB dual channel set, which is pretty much the same thing as the model represented by the long string of digits and letters I have just mentioned, except it operates at DDR3-1333 rather than DDR3-1066. Knowing DDR3-1333 is now the standard memory speed for all second generation Intel Core mobile processors, for an extra five bucks at press time, is this really the kit to get? We installed a set into our brand new, Sandy Bridge based Lenovo ThinkPad T420 laptop to find out.

There is a lot of free Microsoft software to be had, programs which enable better web surfing and help protect against spyware are just two types. PCSTATS Tips
