lost a few hours yesterday to some hp & lenovo and amd & intel memory bus nightmares started when i tried swapping DDR3 / PC3 / PC3L ram between an HP and two LENOVO notebooks
- HP 255 G2 with AMD A4 memory bus FIXED at 1600Mhz
- Lenovo T410 with Core i5 memory bus ONLY works at 1333Mhz
- Lenovo Z50 with AMD FX7500 memory bus FIXED at 800Mhz
Basically the T41o refused to work with any of the other memory whereas i thought DDR3 ram was downwards compatible.
Actually just looking at my photos maybe PC3L is not downwards compatible with PC3 ?
The HP Elitebook Workstation 8560W i7-2820QM Quad Core 2.3GHz 16GB 320GB 2GB Nvidia Quadro DVD-RW Win 7 Pro (refurbished for £450 from Morgan http://goo.gl/eEsEQf) is really much more of a Workstation than a Laptop in fact it would probably crush your lap after 20 mins.
just setup a new hp photosmart 5520
and it seems you can send an email directly to it from anywhere in the world and it will get printed for you
there are all apps for it that can print newletters, coupons, puzzles, recipes etc directly to it on a regular basis
