I am thinking of upgrading my RAM. What is the difference between these two products offered by Lenovo on their website?
1: 2GB PC3-8500 1066Mhz DDR3 SODIMM Memory
2: 2GB PC3-8500 DDR3-1066 Low-Halogen SODIMM Memory
I have been unsuccessful in learning what the "low-halogen" means. Does it change anything about the RAM and how it performs?
Moderator edit: Added some detail to the subject.
it is just a RoHS protocol....... no real difference... the manufacturers are trying to move away from environmentally hazardous materials. Lot of halogen chemicals are used as fire retardants in electronics....
