Would i be safe putting 2 sets of the the 32GB kits in my laptops 4 ram slots (laptop supports up to 64gb)? Would they function properly and would it be considered single/dual/quad channel?

They should run in dual-channel mode. It's definitely safe. The only reason they wouldn't function properly is if you got a bad set or if your laptop somehow has 4 RAM slots but only has a single-channel memory interface.

My laptop came with an original RAM specs of 2400 mhz. Think this one is 2133. Anyone know if this would still work without any hiccups?

It'll work fine, but will slow down your other RAM if you use it in dual-channel mode. That said, dual-channel 2133 is better than single-channel 2400, so that's worth keeping in mind.

Also of note: if you use two mismatched sticks (i.e. your laptop came with an 8GB stick and you add a 16GB stick to make 24GB) it can't run in dual-channel usually.

Been running mis-matched sticks for years. As a matter of fact, it came new from Dell that way (8gb + 4gb). I've refused to pay the BS prices to upgrade. That computer has been used for software development (real code and compiling, not html/JS stuff), photoshop, audio work, etc. Absolutely zero hiccups and zero issues.

I'm thinking of doing this myself. I've been fine with 12gb, but one stick that replaces the 4gb would double my memory to 24gb. Not being a gamer I've never worry about fractional seconds, which is what the result many mean (forget "specs" because IRL you'll have a hard time measuring it, let alone ever noticing it).

How do I know what's compatible in my laptop I have a Dell that's going on 2 years old and has expandable memory up to 16gb. So I would just remove the 8gb card for the 16gb?

What model do you have? Traditionally laptops have 2 slots in which case you could keep your 8gb and add 16gb to it (although adding 8 would probably be just as good for less money). More recent ultrabooks generally either have 1 slot or none at all.

Front end web design is still "real coding". That's why front end developers are paid quite well. Also Python and Ruby aren't compiled languages and are extremely popular.
