RAM confusion

I'm in England, and want to buy the ram for my Laptop while I am here. (SOme nasty bank issues means I need to spend in on my credit card urgently (It's too confusing to go into).
 
This says I need Two SODIMM slots DDR3L-1600 MHz Dual Channel Support

I'm confused by MT/s vs MHz
 
Are these the same?

    MTS is mega transfers per second. DDR3 memory can transfer data on both the rising and falling of the clock signal so typically twice the actual clock speed. The manufacturer's site specs for the models in your links are below. Both appear to be about the same. The DDR3L indicates a low voltage module compared to more typical ~1.5 volts for DDR3.
