So.... I sold my parents a laptop and it died a month later... :? and well my parents are cool! So I am gonna build them a desktop as so far no one has had luck with laptops (except for me). Well anyway. I purchased a M11x R3 and it has 1 stick of 4GB DDR3 and the laptop I sold them is 2 sticks of 2GB DDR3. Can I take one of those 2GB Sticks and use it in my M11x R3 for a total of 6GB of DDR3? 4GBx2GB
Thanks!


BTW Both Laptops are DELL made
Alienware (DELL) M11x R3
and
DELL Inspiron M5010

Do they use the same RAM standard? Then you're fine.
