Laptop memory upgrade

I want to add a 512MB RAM chipset to my Dell laptop. It calls for DDR SDRAM, PC2700 / 333 MHz. Any brands to avoid? Is all DDR PC2700 SDRAM the same or is there something special about laptop memory?

I prefer Kingston or Viking. I would avoid PNY though.

I have an extra 512MB sodimm that I think is PC2700 if you need a deal and have not purchased one yet. I need to confirm that it is PC2700 though.

I'm always looking for a deal

*edit* - Upon digging further it looks like I can only add 256MB more RAM and it's a 200 pin chipset instead of the standard 168 so that limits my choices.
