- MicroDIMM memory?

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.
