Leif: The difference in the numbers (2700 versus 3200) is speed rating-- basically, the higher the number the faster the RAM. Your computer is currently using 2700, so it's safe to use 3200, it's just faster than is currently used/specified.
Your computer is a Socket A - AMD Via-based board, so it is likely the motherboard will accept 1 GB memory modules. With three slots open, you would want to buy 2, 1-GB modules for best results. At current pricing, that would cost about $100. 2- 512MB modules would be next-best and around $55. Be sure to place the two modules in the slots next to each other, and closest to the processor for best results.

No, you will have to use DDR memory only. Fortuately, DDR id VERY inexpensive now.
I can recommend www.TigerDirect.com

    Which memory ram for amilo pro v7010


    http://www.fujitsu-siemens.ru/Resources/123/2080773523.pdf

    Here's a link to the Data Sheet with the specifications to that Laptop in Adobe Reader format.

    Looks like your Laptop came with either 256 or 512 MB of DDR SDRAM and it is upgradable to 2 GB of DDR SDRAM.

    You can check to see exactly how much RAM your computer came with by going to Control Panel, double-click System and it should tell you how much RAM you currently have in the System Properties box.

    The motherboard has 2 slots for RAM, you you could add a second 256 MB or a second 512 MB stick of RAM. Or if you wanted to upgrade to the 2GB of maximum RAM this computer handles, then you can take out the RAM chip(s) that is installed and install two 1G DDR SDRAM.

    The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

    For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
    But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.
