Do not mix gold plated connectors with silver connectors. In other words, if the socket on the motherboard is gold plated, use gold plated DIMM's, same for silver. The 2 do not mix. This causes corrosion and separation of the module. Also, use the recommended speeds. If one is lower than the motherboard requires, your system will not be stable, resulting in the loss of data.

2 gigabytes of RAM is what you should get for a Touch screen laptop. If you only find 1 gigabyte, you can upgrade it with a 1 gigabyte RAM chip.

If you are referring to the speed of the RAM, then yes, you should check it before you buy it. For instance, the motherboard that you are using may be incompatable with the RAM you intend on purchasing, and as such, will not work.

Usually the RAM stick has a label on it saying what kind of RAM it is and how big it is, and it should say if it is DDR or DDR2. If not, don't know what to tell you.

The slot itself is categorized as "DDR3" so it will fit. The speed of the RAM will only work if your motherboard supports that speed. Therefore, check your motherboard manual to determine if it supports DDR3-1066 RAM. If you mix up your RAM with different speeds, such as using a DDR3-1066 with a DDR3-1800, then the RAM speed will be matched with the lowest speed, making both RAM operate as a DDR3-1066. Mixing RAM of different speeds isn't recommended.

Depends on what you use your computer for. Nowadays it is good to have from 4gb RAM to 8gb RAM for a gaming computer. 2-4gb for a light-use computer. Office computers should have 4gb.
