MicroDIMM memory?

I'm looking for 128MB PC100 MicroDIMM
ram for a Toshiba 3480CT.
I find it listed online at memory dealers,
but it's priced at 50x the value of the laptop,
and it's not in stock anyway.

I'm gonna have to find some at a garage sale or
swapmeet.  But here's my problem.
Sony uses ram that looks exactly like it, but
has different part numbers.  I've looked at a lot
of dealer descriptions.  Not one claimed compatibility
with sony and toshiba for the same part.
Not at all clear
what's different about it.  Are they really
incompatible?  Cause buying a whole used laptop
is very often MUCH cheaper than buying a single part.
If the sony-compatible ram works, that doubles my
probability of success.

If I see a MicroDIMM, how can I tell if it will
work in my Toshiba without plugging it in?

Again, this is NOT typical laptop ram.  It's
1.5" wide and 1.25" tall MicroDIMM.

Thanks, mike

So why not buy a second Toshiba 3480CT.
Just for the memory, and sell the remains??

Like I said, that's a $57 memory for a $2 laptop.  Ain't gonna happen.
I'll add it if I can find it cheap.

Because they come with 64 or 96MB, which is what I already have.
Gotta take out 64 to put in 128.
It's cheaper to buy a newer laptop with 512MB of ram.
