  1. Question

    Mike Schuler

    can you upgrade the dram on the 15 i3520-5810BLK-PUS

    • Dan

      According to the official specs of the Dell Inspiron 3520 / i3520 series, the laptop has two RAM slots, but we don’t know whether they are both occupied in the i3520-5810BLK-PUS configuration. Anyway, you can have more than 8GB of RAM in this config, for instance 2 x 8GB=16GB. But, the RAM slots aren’t easily accessible. According to the service manual, you have to remove the keyboard besides the bottom panel in order to access the RAM slots.
