While it'll take either DDR3 or DDR3L, you should not mix the two.

I have Dell Inspirion 5521. For me it works just fine. I have one 4Gb DDR3  and one 4Gb DDR3L in dual channel.

This is true ONLY of pre-fourth generation Intel CPUs - newer systems either don't allow mixing or, in the case of the newest couple of generations, won't work with DDR3 at all -- they require DDR3L.
