Laptop memory upgrade

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a Dell Inspiron 8000 with 256 meg of ram I bought recently from

I recently ordered from IBM a refurbished T20 Thinkpad which will come
with 128 meg of RAM.

On a lark, I went to Crucial's site to research getting another 128
meg for the Thinkpad.

It "looks" like the Inspiron and Thinkpad use the same type of RAM
(SDRAM, PC100 CL=2 Non-parity 100MHz  3.3V  16Meg x 64  144-pin

But the RAM for the IBM and the Dell come up with different part
numbers and slightly different prices ($2 difference).

Will I be able to use the RAM from my Dell in my new Thinkpad, or is
there some other spec difference that's not included in the "SDRAM,
PC100  CL=2  Non-parity  100MHz  3.3V  16Meg x 64  144-pin SODIMM"
