     FYI, I just bought a 16mb RAM module over the phone from 
     Southland Micro <http://www.southlandmicro.com/>.
     
     The price was $128 plus $9.50 shipping (it's to be delivered 
     Monday, so I can't speak to quality; others on this list say 
     they work, though).  Not bad, considering Southland was 
     quoting $150 last week.
     
     Southland's number is 1-800-255-4200, and I spoke to Kay 
     (who handles new accounts).
     
     The 16mb RAM part number is: SMC 16MB-AERO.  They also sell 
     8mb and 4mb, I think.
     
     Best,
     Andy

For those of you who are looking for a cheap 16 MB RAM upgrade module for
their Compaq Aero, I just ordered one from "Southland Micro Systems". I
should receive it by the end of the week... At that time, I will post a
final status on the module...

Note that their WEB site specified a price of U$ 215 for the module (P/N
"SMC 16MB-AERO"), but I just talked to Nadia from sales (phone extension
160), and their current price is U$ 150 + shipping + insurance charges !!!

Here are the coordinates :

   Vendor : Southland Micro Systems
   Location : Irvine, California 92618
   Web site : www.southlandmicro.com
   Phone : (800) 255-4200 or (714) 380-1958

You should also note that they offer an unconditionnal lifetime warranty on
their modules.

[C] Sylvain had no problem with his memory from Southland, so I went and
bought me 16 Mb for the same price. Works great!    - Philip Wilk

If anyone is looking for 16MB memory upgrades for their Aero, WorldWide
Memory is selling a Transcend version for $205. I installed it and it works
fine. Comes with a lifetime warranty. Phone number is 800-666-6117. They
advertise in the back of Computer Shopper.
