I'm looking for a new laptop and the Dell Inspiron 15R SE seems a pretty good fit for my requirements. However, I can't find the maximum RAM capacity anywhere in the spec. It seems Dell don't ship them with any more than 8GB, but how can I tell what I can extend that to after sale? I'm looking at the model with an Intel i7 3612QM which has a max memory size of 32GB ("dependent on memory type"). But I don't know enough to be sure if that's the only limiting factor.

Kingston reports the largest available module as 4GB. With 2 banks this makes the maximum 8GB. Generally I have found Kingston to be quite reliable.

Agreed... crucial.com is also pretty good –  BrianAdkins Jul 17 '12 at 21:45
Thanks guys. I always use Offtek and they also show 4GB as the maximum module available. –  Mark Jul 18 '12 at 7:25
