Dell XPS M1710 RAM upgrade to 16GB (2x8GB modules) possible?
so I was looking to upgrade my slowly aging XPS M1710 laptop. I talked to a guy from Dell's tech support. Currently, I have the standard Dell 6GB (2x3GB) modules and he said Dell has not tested 8GB modules so he can only assure that 2x4GB would work correctly with the system.
I was wondering if that is a technical issue or if Dell is just uncomfortable from a warranty standpoint. I don't think the 2GB upgrade to 8GB (2x4GB) would not make much of a difference, but the upgrade to 16GB (2x8GB) would be huge.
The reason for the upgrade is that for some reason SPSS while running Chrome and Spotify easily fill the available memory and hit 90% utilization. This slows down the computing process heavily.
Any feedback or experience with the upgrade is appreciated!
