    Cheap laptop 32 GB RAM Memory Card deals currently


    Hi folks
    I don't normally get involved in "Black Friday" stuff -- Ghastly US idea like that hideous Halloween thing - but if you have a laptop that you can easily open up then there's a load of decent cheap 2 X 16 GB , 1X16 GB and 1X 32 GB RAM cards (specially for laptops) around.

    They won't make your laptop go any faster but you can do an awful lot more concurrent things --great also for running multiple VM's.

    Even older laptops (certainly those of 5 years old and newer - not sure about older ones) that normally have "Max RAM size 8GB" seem to work.

    I put a single 32 GB into an HP envy sleekbook (at least 5 years old) and it works just fine. (there's only 1 memory slot on the laptop).

    32GB RAM module for laptop -- paid 120 EUR for it on Amazon Prime - no sales tax - "Educational material" !!!!

    Check first although it seems that so long as the BIOS is not MBR (UEFI system computer) updating RAM works -- for MBR only machines you are on your own on this one though.

    (Although I'd still recommend fitting an SSD first before any memory upgrades -- also don't worry about the memory speed on updating older laptops - doesn't make a "Euro's worth of difference").

    Cheers
    jimbo

    Upgrading to 32 GB RAM

    Before you spend your money, I suggest you use Task Manger to check how much free RAM memory you currently have. Few applications need as much as 32GB. My laptop has 8GB and is currently only using 3GB.

    Is there a difference between laptop memory sticks and desktop memory

    As mentioned by SIW2, desktop PCs typically use full-size DIMMs (dual inline memory modules). laptops normally use SODIMMs (small outline DIMMs). They are entirely diffent physically, and not interchangeable, even though functionally they are the same. I have no idea what "Bree" was thinking.

    Is your "workstation" the laptop listed in My Computer (Dell M6800)? If so, the largest SODIMMs it supports are 8GB. With 4 memory slots, the maximum RAM in the machine would be 32 GB. (That's with an I7-4940MX CPU. With a lesser CPU, only 2 of the SODIMM sockets would be usable, for a maximum of 16 GB.)

    The suggestion to go to Crucial or Kingston online is good. They both guarantee that RAM they sell for a given PC will be compatible.
