Adding Ram Question? Dell Inspiron 14 - N4050


I've got an old dell laptop that a friend gave me to fill in while I save for a new macbook, pro to replace the one that I had stolen.

It's mostly been OK, though lacking Ram, at only 4gb. I'd like to have 8.

So, regarding matching or replacing the existing Ram, what would be better/cheaper, as it's only a temp solution?

 - Add another 4gb module

 - Or, replace the existing with an 8gb module

I've attached a photo of what's in there - don't know why it rotated!

Also, if I was to add an extra 4, how do I match?

The speed is 1333Mhz, its DDR3 and form factor SODIMM. Not sure about the other numbers on the sticker. 

Thanks in advance for your help!

The system supports max of 8GB memory.

Kindly find the compatible memory modules from Crucial here.

There is no 8GB module listed from Dell or Crucial for Inspiron n4050.

So, you might need to install 2 X 4GB modules.

Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.

Let us know if you have any other queries.
