    Placing the order now with Crucial, they were a bit less than the other places, also if you order 2x single 16GB rather than 1 pack of 2x 16GB, it's cheaper!

    But may not be from the same batch for pairing purposes*

    The may or may not be an issue depending on processor and motherboard...

    The implication from Crucial is that it doesn't need to be paired. We'll see when it arrives.
    In the meantime I have discovered that the 2TB hybrid drive is actually 2TB of hard disk plus 128GB of solid state.

    Providing you choose off the listing that Crucial show as compatible, then you should have no worries. I can't recall ever having problems even running different brands together. But choosing memory only from the compatibility list is the best option, for sure. If it doesn't work they'll change it or refund you no problem anyway.

    The memory was from the compatible list and is now installed - unplug power lead, press button hidden behind power connector, door pops open, open cage, insert memory cards, close it up.
    Machine is now running with 40GB of RAM

    Is that enough to run MS Word?
