What RAM do I need to upgrade my laptop?

Published on 03 december 2019

You place SODIMM memory modules in a laptop. This RAM is smaller than the RAM modules that you install in a desktop computer. Here too you can find the memory that is currently installed via the task manager in Windows and in Linux by running the command 'dmidecode --type 17'.


The memory for your laptop must also match the working memory currently in your computer. For example, you can buy DDR4 SODIMM memory with a speed of 2133 MHz if it is currently installed in your laptop. Checking how much space is left in your laptop can be difficult. Also remember that the difficulty level for replacing RAM in your laptop can vary enormously between different types and brands.
