    Okay. So based on that, you recommend me to go to 16gb or 32gb? Seems like 16gb is 63 dollars... and i could get 32gb for around 109 dollars. Previously it was around 124 dollars.

    Indeed. Whether there's a point getting 32GB or not is one question only yourself can answer.
    Unless you know exactly what model of laptop you'll be taking AND that model has upgradeable RAM, that's unrealistic.

    @Drew1 current XPS 15 uses DDR4 2933, thus you'd better get DDR4 2933 or faster modules.

    I took a look at that and confused. That person bought samsung ram... i read to buy crucial ram. So the 2400 ddr4 won't work with its cl 16? What does cl 16 mean and where do i find that info on amazon?

    It'll be minimum 4266mhz next year with the 11th Gen INTELs, bloke.
    2933Mhz RAMs will hv a compatibility problem with OP's old "heart" and system.
