I have in laptop RAM 2x4GB 2600 works in dual
I have from old laptop 16 GB 2100.

Motherboard speed 2600 MHz.

Probably I can use 4+16 GB, so:

1. 8 GB RAM is not much, but it works in dual.
2. 20 will be ok, but it is not working in dual mode.

For chess engines analyses which option can be better ?

better off with a desktop for chess as the laptop will bake from running chess too much

I agree with Vegan, but if you only have laptops, then my answer is to use both of them with two different engines.

Under-clock and under-volt your laptop, and have a strong fan under it.
(I 'burned up' an expensive HP laptop several years ago a short time after the warranty expired.
The newer ones use less watts but I just use an inexpensive tablet for occasional 'on the go' use.)

If you are running Lc0 you might think about the 20 GB option.

With my 32 GB ram desktop, Lc0 (RTX 2060) uses up the memory if analyzing one position for a few (2 to 4?) hours.
Long games are fine though, Lc0 seems to discard the 'before' or something. (And I think a Stockfish-Lc0 colors-reversed game pair is more interesting than long analysis anyway.)
