Hey, I am seeking a new laptop and was thinking about getting a RAM upgrade as soon as I got the laptop, how ever i've found looking at 4gb ram it's usually (2X 2GB) and i was just wondering if this is two different cards and if so does your computer have enough slots or w.e

also 8GB = 4X 2GB..

Thanks

Yes 4gb will be two modules of 2Gb each. I don't think there are single 4gb modules available yet.

mine doesn't,yours might ,you didn't say what the laptop was going to be when you by it ,check with the laptop specification before you buy it .

no way to tell as you don't know what one youa re buying and they are all different ,just as where you by it ,usually you can tell by the ram capacity ,like if it says it can take 4gig ram then you know there are 2 slots ,because for now bigest one stick of ram is 2gig .

that won't work in this case ,they never bought the laptop yet ,and want to know the answer before they buy it
