T500 DDR3 1333 - Will This Work?

Hi,

 

I've got a quick and hopfully simply question. 

 

According to this: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-55644#t

 

My T500 can support PC3-8500 DDR3-1066 SODIMM. However, the availablity of 1066 DDR3 where I live is virtually non existent, while I can easily purchase a 1333 DDR3. Will it simply work at the lower frequency, or can I expect problems?

 

Thanks a lot!

Crucial's and Kingston's memory finders show both 1066 and 1333 RAM as compatible with the T500.  You should be OK if you stick with a reputable supplier.  Avoid value RAM.

 

Crucial Memory Advisor results for the Lenovo ThinkPad T500 Series Laptop/Notebook.

 

I'm running Crucial (1066) in my T400.  There are reports of compatibility problems with our vintage ThinkPads and Corsair RAM.  YMMV.
