I have a DELL Studio 17 (1747) and i wish to upgrade it to 16GB of Memory. My internet research has so far suggested i cannot do this. My research (typing “1747 max memory” into Google) suggests the best i can have it 2 x 4GB sticks for a total of 8GB (my current configuration). Can anyone point me to a trust worthy resource which would confirm the 1747 can support 16GB of memory? If the 1747 can support 16GB of memory where would one source 8GB sticks from? Not an 8GB kit but 2 x 8GB sticks for a total of 16GB. The Lenovo “W” series allows for 16GB of memory, is this achieved with 4 x 4GB sticks? I would like the extra memory for virtualisation.
