Dell Inspiron 13 5378 RAM Upgrade

What is maximum amount of RAM you can install on Dell Inspiron 13 5378/5379 and what type of memory it uses!

Dell Inspiron 13 5378 was released in year 2017 and depending of configuration it came either 4GB or 8GB DDR4 RAM. In year 2023 4GB is definitely not enough to run Windows 10 or Windows 11. It’s not only about Windows but also multitasking or trying to run programs like MS OFFICE etc.

At very least 8GB is recommended minimum amount of RAM these days, personally would go with 16GB to be sure that no upgrade needed in coming years. Of course it comes down to price as well, obviously more memory equals more money!

Good news is that you are able to upgrade Dell Inspiron RAM to 32GB without any issues, follow tutorial below.
