Can you combine 8gb and 16gb RAM in a laptop?

Yes, you can combine 8 GB and 16 GB RAM in a laptop.

Let’s first discuss why you might want to do this.

If your laptop has 8GB RAM and you buy a new laptop with 16GB RAM, then you can install the old 8GB RAM into the new laptop. This will give you 24GB RAM which is more than enough for most people.

However, if your laptop has 16GB RAM, then it is not recommended that you install the old 8GB RAM into the new laptop because there will be some performance loss due to the extra distance between the memory chips (which is why it is important to have as little distance as possible).

If you want to install two types of memory modules in one machine, then there are two ways of doing so:

1) Install two identical sets of memory modules on each DIMM slot (DIMM slot 1 = DIMM slot 2).
