How to Check whether Crucial Memory is Compatible with Your Computer

Crucial is a popular band with different memory products such as computer memory and SSD. We can see great Crucial products deals sometimes. For example, there is a lightning deal which a 16 GB kit (two 8 GBs) is for $59.99 CAD in 2016 April 11 as one day sale.  You know $59.99 is a single 8 GB memory price in BestBuy.

But we should know different computers use different parts, there is no a universal computer memory can be used by all computers. So before we purchase a computer memory, we should check whether it works on our existing computer.
