Windows 7: Dell Inspiron 1545 RAM question...

Dell Inspiron 1545 RAM question...

ok, so I know it's a long-shot that anyone out there has one, let alone has swapped out the RAM but I have an Inspiron 1545 (hey, it was cheap, wasnt even sure how much I'd use it), came with Win7x64 and 4gb RAM, my manual says 8gb max, nothing else does, everything else (crucial, dell upgrades, etc) says 4gb max.

Now, not sure I even really have a need for it but since I'll probably end up editing video from my camcorder on the laptop, maybe that would use it (plus, I figure GiMP probably likes as much RAM as it can get).

So, anyone know if it will take 8gb? I mean I suppose I could just order it and if it doesnt work, pay the restocking fee and return it. cant even imagine the desktop one could build these days.

(on a side note, we may be switching to Revit at work and if we do, I'm pushing for at least 12gb and quad core)

  • 4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 800MHz
  • 2GB DDR2 at 800MHz
  • 6GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 800MHz
  • 8GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 800MHz

Looks like it will quite happily handle 8gb
