Below is the link to the crucial memory report for your notebook.


You can actually go as high as 2 x 16 GB of memory if you want.


There is no such type of memory as single or dual channel memory.


Single channel memory = memory in one slot, and an empty memory slot, or mismatched memory capacities in both slots (2 GB + 4 GB for example).


Dual channel memory = matching capacity memory in both slots (2 x 2 GB, 2 x 4 GB for example).
