Hello everyone, I was thinking about buying this laptop.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+-+Inspiron+17.3%26%233...

A notebook DELL inspiron 17R Special Edition, i7-3630QM, 8GB RAM, 32 SSD and a nvidia 650m, but I was wondering if in this model I can upgrade from 8 GB RAM to 12 or 16 GB RAM, I will use CAD softwares and I need a lot of RAM.

Thank you

Best solution

I think this will answer your question:

According to the Dell expert in the thread, the system only supports 8GB of RAM.

Here a user has trouble after a RAM upgrade:

As mentioned in the DELL forum the 8GB module may or may not work but DELL does not recommend it. For Memory intensive applications try getting a Desktop or workstation rather than a laptop. .. even major memory retailers haven't listed it (check the below sites) so, I'd say dont try it. It's not worth it.
