  1. Hi there,

    this is René from germany. I’m not an IT expert. So, please can you tell me where the RAM is located? Can`t see it. I’ve read something about, that it is possible to extend the 8GB up to 16GB. Is that right?

    Best regards,

    René

    1. It is on the motherboard. Look at the 3d picture of the motherboard. I don’t know about expanding the RAM, but I don’t think so.
      Good Luck!

    1. Have you got pixel lines coming up in your screen too? I’ve got that at the moment and looking for a strip down so I can replace it

  2. The worst laptop interior design ever. Whole design is bad. non-upgradable memory, Be very careful, as the cables love to just pull out with the slightest touch….good luck getting it back in. I was going to upgrade the Msata but no way… you take this laptop apart and being as flimsy as it is… you’ll never get it back right. I’ve got one in pieces at the moment. Should have stopped at the SSD. Thats easy, but be careful with the adapter to the drive, the ribbon it’s connected to LOVES to pull out and you’ll never get it back in. I had to source another from dell-parts.com. They have everything by model and sub model… even system correct screws. Anyhow, stick with the SSD upgrade … toss a Samsung EVO 850 or 850 Pro (not a huge delta, but best on the market imo – speed and reliabiity. Crucial is good as well – just a tad slower than the sammy. (example — testing on my machine) Crucial Read: 490, Write: 370MB/s – the 850 non-pro came in at 560MB/s read and 515MB/s write. So you lose a tad on write but the drive is usually about $50-75 cheaper than the 850. Also check the 840 for a deal.

    I got this machine via a dell trick… sent two machines (my main is a Latitude 7450 – 16gb ram, 1TB SSD (850PRO). I7-Core… with it this laptop came. I went to return and they said “if we sell it to you for $200 off will you keep it? ” lol no… I’ll pay $200 for this now well used machine in the last 30 minutes. Whats my RMA? got it for $250 shipped. Perfect for my 7 year old. The msata was 128GB… if you’re gonna put it in the hardest place to swap… put a bigger one in to start, dunno what dell was thinking. Should have put it where the Wifi card is, Otherwise… whole machine comes apart. That’s not going back together right.
