To use DDR3 memory, your system must have both a 204-pin SODIMM slot and a chipset that supports DDR3 memory. A DDR3 SODIMM will not fit into DDR2 or DDR memory sockets.
SODIMMs are smaller and thinner than regular DIMMs, and the 204-pin SODIMM PCBs are always ~2.6 inches long and are usually around 1.18 inches high (though the heights can vary slightly). They consist of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The number of memory components on a 204-pin SODIMM's printed circuit board (PCB) can vary, but the PCB will always have 102 pins on the front and the back both, for a total of 204 pins. The gold pins on the bottom of the SODIMM provide the connection between the memory module and the memory socket.

Comments about Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) 204-pin SODIMM DDR3 PC3-12800:
Very pleased with this RAM. It is running at the low voltage on my machine which means it is saving power over the 1.5v RAM. Speed is good however my CPU can only handle PC3-10600 so it is currently running at that speed. It is also working in dual channel mode which is great.
The latency also appears to be 9 clocks and not the 11 stated which may be because I am running it slower but either way it is good news.
My only question is why low voltage RAM isn't the default RAM recommended by crucial when you enter your machine information.
