Thanks Judy, that's handy !

For the Vostro under discussion I get

     Maximum Memory Capacity:  4096MB
     Currently Installed Memory:  4GB

But for my T30 Thinkpad I get:

     Maximum Memory Capacity:  1024MB
     Currently Installed Memory:  2GB

so clearly it doesn't indicate the maximum RAM that will or can work, so 
much as what the manufacturer wants you to think will work !
