Ram for ThinkPad L412

Hi guys.

Maybe there i find anserw to my question. What measn letter of the end designation of RAM? On official page of Thinkpad L412 is PC3-10600NP; i know PC3 - DDR3, 10600-1333MHz, but NP? In all shops i always see PC3-10600S, this memory will be working? I buy this laptop on allegro.pl (Polish version of the e-bay) without ram and HDD. I have SSD 64GB SanDisk, but still have problem with RAM.

Sorry for my English, but i live in Poland.

Re: Ram for ThinkPad L412

Welcome to the forum!

 

You need to buy SO-DIMM RAM, DDR3-10600 (plain, no NP, S or whatever letter). Avoid the no-name brands from eBay and alike, stick to well known brands like:

 

  • Samsung
  • Elpida 
  • Kingston (but avoid the "Value RAM" series)
  • Crucial
  • Hynix
  • Corsair (but avoid the "Value Select" series)
  • ADATA

Hope this helps... On doubt you can post the link of the RAM you want to buy here so that we can cross-check it.

 

Edit: typo corrected

Re: Ram for ThinkPad L412

Sorry, I had a typo in my previous post (I meant 10600 RAM instead of 1600)

 

That RAM should work, however, if it were me I would rather look for DDR3-10600 instead of DDR3-12800 as the ones in your link. Just to be on the safe side...

Re: Ram for ThinkPad L412

Hello everybody.

May I ask you if this RAM is supported by my ThinkPad L512?
http://www.kingston.com/us/memory/search/?partid=kvr16ls11/4

 

Or maybe you suggest this?
http://www.kingston.com/us/memory/search/?partid=kvr13s9s8/4

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Ram for ThinkPad L412

Welcome to the forum!

 

The links take me to a search page so I cannot check the exact model you have in mind.

 

However, from the link I see a string "kvr16ls11/4"

 

KVR stands for "Kingston Value RAM", this is the economy line from Kingston and is known to have trouble working with ThinkPads.

 

I would avoid that type of RAM, if you want to stick with Kingston look for the HyperX or any line which doesn't have the word "Value" on it. Otherwise you may also check some well known brands like:

 

  • Crucial
  • Elpida
  • Hynix
  • Corsair (But avoid the "Value Select" line)
  • Samsung
  • ADATA

Happy hunting!

 

P.S. If I were you I would stick to DDR3-10600 RAM
