Hello again, My sissy has an Asus Vivobook laptop with 4 GB DDR4 2400MHz SDRAM Onboard memory, I bought another ram card yesterday from an online shop with the same amount of 4GB memory but I noticed it has different speed (aprx. 2666MHz) do I need to worry about installing it since it has different speeds? What are the cons and pros of mixing rams with different speeds?

If the speed of both isn't the same, the lower speed will simply be used. So it's not a big problem, but you could edge some more performance out of the laptop if both are 2666 (assuming it even supports that speed).

What Chucker said. The 2666 and 2400 are slot compatible, and the 2666 will down-clock to 2400 speed (provided your computer supports that). However, some computers are super picky and may require both slots to hold RAM of the same clock speed, i.e. both would need to be 2400 or 2666. Keep in mind that you are not going to hurt anything. Put the RAM in. and it either works or it doesn't.
