I was poking around for RAM for my laptop, I noticed Micron Origional has 256MB sticks of PC100, one says "Low-Density" the other doesen't say anything - I bought a stick the non-low stuff. Theyre both the same price. I've also seen "high-density" notebook RAM out there as well.

What's the difference/advantage of Low vs. High-density RAM?

low density = less memory per chip

high density = more memory per chip

lower density is more compatible on older systems.

there isn't really any advantage other than higher memory capacity(high density) per stick of ram

There's no advantage.

Some older P6 based systems require low density SDRAM because they refused to recognize the chips with the higher densities.
