Memory slots and motherboard name & model

Re: Asus K60IRF-RBBBR05 Notebook

I want to know how many memory slots are on the motherboard. Questioning Asus and the vendor selling this unit has proven to be futile.

If anyone at ABXZone knows I would appreciate hearing from them.

The only valid thing I know about the motherboard is that it uses a IntelŪ PentiumŪ T4400 (1M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) Socket P processor.

If anyone knows the mfg and model number of this board I would appreciate learning it.

Re: Memory slots and motherboard name & model

To wrap this up, the Asus K601J comes with 4GB of memory
PC2-6400 200-Pin CL6 Unbuffered DDR2-800 SODIMM RAM.

There are 2GB of non-replaceable memory embedded on the motherboard and a
movable slot that swings with another 2GB of memory installed.

Published data shows that the memory capacity for this notebook is 8GB. I question how this is possible since I cannot find any source to purcahse a 6GB stick of memory to replace the 2GB stick in the moveable slot.

Well there is a problem, there is a K601 and I think somehow the company's like Crucial have the 601 and the 601J mixed up, the 601 can do 8 gigs but like you've said the 601J has 2 gig onboard so you can only add 4 gigs to the one open slot for a total of 6 gig....that's what I came up with.

Re: Memory slots and motherboard name & model

Thank you for responding. I do appreciate your input.

Because I cannot find a 6GB memory module my limited choice is a 4GB module. I wonder if increasing ram by 2GB (from 4GB to 6GB) would be worth the price of that 4GB stick? Would I really achieve a significant increase in computing power by doing so?

Or, should I dispose of this Asus K601J notebook and purchase a more powerful and I assume more expensive one with greater ram already installed.

Re: Memory slots and motherboard name & model

To be honest you would see a greater benfit by going to a SSD hardrive than going from 4 to 6 gigs of memory, really you would never notice the difference between 4 and 6, but a ssd it would be night and day!
