I have a Dell Inspiron 5521 Laptop having 4 GB RAM. I am planning to add additional 8GB RAM.
So, the Total RAM would be 4+8= 12 GB.
I found the following information in Dell Specifications User Guide:
Inspiron 5521 Two internally-accessible DDR3 SODIMM connectors
Inspiron 5537 Two internally-accessible DDR3L SODIMM connectors
Capacity Up to 16 GB
Inspiron 5521 Dual channel DDR3
Inspiron 5537 Dual channel DDR3L
Speed Up to 1600 MHz
Configurations supported 2 GB, 4 GB, 6 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB
I found the following Memory Module information by running Command on my Laptop:
Total Width: 64 bits Data Width: 64 bits Size: 4096 MB Form Factor: SODIMM Set: None Locator: JDIMM2 Bank Locator: Not Specified Type: DDR3 Type Detail: Synchronous Speed: 1600 MHz
Question 1: Is it possible to add 4+8= 12GB configuration in this Laptop?
Question 2: Should i use DDR3 instead of DDR3L RAM in this Laptop?
Question 3: Which RAM is best supported with this Laptop, Kingston or CORSAIR Vengeance?
Note: I am using Ubuntu on this Machine.
