Can I put pc5300 200pin SoDimm in a laptop
that cam with pc2700? If I put in the 5300 will
it at least perform at the 2700 speed?

It's not compatible. PC5300 is DDR2...PC2700 is DDR1. They may both have 200-pins, but they require different voltages & the edges are notched differently so they can't be installed in the wrong slot.

Thank you. I didn't think they were, but I needed to know for
sure. I was offered a great deal on some 200pin. Would have
made another bad decision. Thanx again.
