    8GB RAM in Single Channel vs in Dual Channel?

    My laptop supports 16GB RAM in dual channel mode, but now it has 4GB RAM in it. I want to upgrade my RAM from 4GB to 8GB. Is it better to use 2 4GB sticks in dual channel or 1 8GB stick in single channel? What will be the performance difference?

    Memory appears to be running really slow

    I recently purchased a 'new' laptop, an open box Dell Inspiron 7586.

The old laptop had a pair of 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM, so I thought the memory...
