So I recently bought a new laptop. A Dell Insprion 15 7000.
It contains 8GB of DDR3L RAM with a maximum installable amount of 16 GB.
My previous laptop had 8 GB of RAM but in 2x4GB portions. Better than nothing, I thought I'd look at transferring 4GB across and increasing my RAM up to 12GB.
From a brief browse as the actual RAM I've extracted doesn't say, the Samsung site says the memory type is DDR3 (1600MHz). My new laptop says on the inside "DDR3L Only" in the RAM area. Is there a difference or will the recycled RAM be incompatible?
Lastly, if they are compatible, am I making the right decision in doing this? Is it as simple as 12GB being better than 8GB or is there any other factors?
For any further information, my new and old laptop specs can be found below.
Thanks in advance!
