Thanks for all the suggestions.

Lonnie Olson suggested Best Buy. As I went past Orem en route last
night I stopped at the Best Buy there. They had what I needed, for
$69.43 (tax included). I opened up my laptop, put the new RAM in, fired
up the beastie, and ran Memtest86+ right there in the parking lot.
Everything looked good, so I drove off. (Thereby redefining the term
Field Replaceable Unit [FRU]. :-)
