  1. RedLeader

    Thanks for this detailed guide! One of the reasons I got the XPS 14 over the XPS 13 was because I planned on upgrading the memory. This guide is really helpful. I’ll check back when I order a couple of DIMMs of RAM.

    Most sites show this laptop as having 2 dimms and a maximum memory of 8gb. Does anyone know where the other slot is? Under keyboard maybe? Can some confirm it is also accessible?

    You are a Savior, God bless you, keep up the good work, actually i was looking for a good & safe way to change the RAM’s by myself of my L421X & guess what, you saved my lots of time 🙂

    P.S.- Sharing is Caring 🙂 😀
