Inspiron 7348 2-in-1 compatibility with 16GB modules

Jump to solution

Does anyone have an updated information about compatibility between single 16gb modules (like the Crucial CT204864BF160B) and the 7348 2-in-1 laptop? Mine has a 5th gen i7-5500U CPU and is already updated to the latest A08 BIOS released yesterday.

Hi,

Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.

The Dell Inspiron 13 - 7348 system supports up to a maximum of 8 GB DDR3L, 1600 MHz memory through a single slot on the system board. The memory configurations available  are 4 GB and 8 GB. Unfortunately, 16GB module is not supported.

Dear attendant,

Based on a successful report I have found in the Internet about compatibility between this Crucial RAM module and the Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 notebook, I decided to take the risk and ordered it from Amazon.com. It arrived today and worked flawlessly! Be advised that the CPU must be a Broadwell (5th gen) or later. This module will not work with 4th gen Haswell Intel CPUs.

Hi abaymajr,

I have a Dell 13-7348 i5-5200 BROADWELL. Do you think that 16 gb CRUCIAL memomy module on your link can work well?

Being a 5th generation Broadwell Intel Core 2 CPU, I do think so. It would be compatible. Its price dropped a few days ago to 100USD level, what makes it a nice and relatively cheap upgrade.

Hi, I would like to know if the 16GB module works with your  7348 2-in-1 laptop? I have the same lap and I need to upgrade the memory.
