The official limit is 8G -- more may work, or may not -- it's not supported officially.

If you have 4G it's likely 2X2, so you'd get 10G if you replace one 2 with an 8.

Though it isn't officially supported, many have reported 16G will work - so 12 should as well.  The only caveat:  if you have a caching mSATA drive, and go beyond 8G, you will need a larger one than the 32G drive shipped with the system if you want to keep the mSATA cache/Intel Rapid Start partition.

Wrong...the Dell Inspiron was designed to support up to 16GB of RAM, not 8GB.
