How can you be sure you purchase the right memory?

By following the steps on Dell.com, you'll be sure. Dell takes the guesswork out of memory upgrades. For each Dell system, we offer tested and qualified memory upgrades. Depending on the type of system you have, even if it is non-Dell, the Dell Memory Selector will recommend a specific type of memory. In general, desktops require DIMMs or RIMMs and laptops require SODIMMs. For a complete overview of the different types of memory, please see the System Memory Glossary
