    I'm looking to purchase a Dell laptop, either a 7577, 7567 or 7559. They all come with 2 slots of ram and have one 8GB stick installed. My question is can I add a 16BG stick in the other slot or do I need to purchase a 8GB stick. In other words do both sticks have to have the same amount of RAM?

    Mismatched RAM is fine. A 16 GB stick will work if the laptop can recognize the RAM.
