Return Policies
In reply to Jim Cockfield, Oct 13, 2012

newegg has a pretty good reputation for their return policy and that item is not marked as no refunds or replacement only.   They do reserve a right to charge a 15% restocking fee.  But, I doubt they would as long as you are careful with it and keep the original packaging.

Crucial also has a pretty good return policy on memory, with up to a 20% restocking fee at their discretion if you read the fine print (but, I don't know if they normally do that or not):  See their refund policy here:

You could also buy that set from them:

Amazon also stocks it (at a lower price compared to newegg and crucial, since they have it for $151.99 delivered now:

They have a 30 day return policy on most electronics, and I don't see memory listed under the list of items that can't be returned:

If you decide to buy from one of those vendors, I'd just make sure to keep the original packaging the memory came in and be careful with it, just in case it's not recognized by your laptop and you need to return it.

You'll have to decide if it's worth the expense ($151.99+) to go from 4GB to 8GB for how you use it (and the performance increase you may or may not see would depend on exactly how you're using one), versus putting that much money into a new and faster laptop (where memory upgrade prices would be much lower with newer DDR3 like most newer computers use now)
