I'm assuming you mean 64Gb of RAM? Afaik yes they do exist in desktop replacement class, but I've only seen specced up to 32Gb.

What would you need that much ram in a laptop for though?

Edit: actually I take that back, there's no processors that support 64gb ram on mobile platform

@Brett. You sure it's a lappy? I know the T7500 supports upto 192GB or ram, but that's a workstation.

Hi :) 

You may well be right....there was a thread here about it.....but at my age you forget precise details lol...

Whatever it was , it was Dell , it was 192 GB , it was over $8000 lol..

All the best Brett :)

Cheers Brett! I'll have a hunt for the thread, I'm kinda curious as to what an 8grand, 192GB lappy would look like, lol. I wonder if it makes coffee and snacks?

First question that popped into my mind was already asked by AntiZig: Why would you need 64GB of RAM?

The HP envy 15 and dell m6500 both have four ram slots, not sure if the cpu supports 64 though.

alright, so in the back of my mind I was correct in my first statement just couldn't remember where it came from, haha.

but the question still stands, what could one possibly need 64gb of ram for? That's like server grade amounts of ram and surely you don't want to be running a server on a laptop?

PS> on a side note: that eurocom clevo case has 5.1 sound system on it. :pt1cable:

Maybe using a generous portion of the 64GB RAM as a RAM disk for video production (assuming the need for video editing on the go function).

We teach software products and going on site with portable HDD and wait for students to copy the 20Gb files is a waste of time.
We're thinking having a laptop+access point so they can simply remote into the VMs hosted in HyperV

Ok for the 4 slots but I can't find SODIMM 16GB, the maximum I see is 8Gb

16GB SODIMM modules are not currently available, so no

you can have them install the software ahead of time with a DVD, then when you get there you connect their machines to your computer which hosts the license to run the software. Other option is to bring your own laptops for every student

It's not that easy the installation/configuration is about 30 mins and we can't afford that

you cannot afford, if the student is to study on their own machine, chances are they already have the copy of the software or you mail them the dvd ahead of time and ask them to install it on their own time.

It's going to take roughly the same amount of time (30min or so) no matter how much RAM you have.
The slow part of the installation process is taking place on the client side, not the server side.
-> Having 64GB of RAM is not going to make the client machines run faster.

you misunderstand, he wants to have 64gb ram so he can set up VM clients for students so it all runs from that one machine that has 64gb ram. Point is I don't think it's doable from the CPU/HDD end, but then I'm not an expert on virtualization.

Nothing to do with the topic about a laptop, but I just got one of those Dell 7500 workstations to setup for our 911 call room in the hospital yesterday. Has 6 RAM slots on the motherboard, and another 6 on a riser card, SAS controller on the motherboard with 4 SAS ports. It was under 8k though, but was not stuffed with RAM, they only have 4 because we run 32bit OS. Think it was between 4-5k.

Sager offers one with 32GB, but not yet 64... Hmmm, this is an interesting question...

2^64 bytes possible, theoretically... so we will be seeing higher and higher amounts of ram as prices go down and things get smaller... VMs takes up a lot of ram; In my field of network engineering where we virtualize routers/switches firewalls as a matter of course for training and testing.
