Default Format of 3G Laptop memory?

Ok.... this has been bugging me for over a year and I've never gotten around to finding out the answer....

I see a lot of laptops these days listing 3 Gig of memory.... does anybody know what the format of that is? Is it some kind of freaky 1.5G sticks in dual channel, 3 1G sticks in tri-channel, 1 2G stick and 1 1G stick without the benefits of dual channel, or 2X 2G sticks in dual channel with 1G for the dedicated video?

Inquiring minds want to know............. ;)

A friend asked my opinion on this laptop:

MSI Notebook Official Website

However what I really noticed was the bit that said "

3GB (1G+2G) DDR3 memory plus 320GB hard drive"

So I guess they go for a mix of mis-matched sticks with no dual channel?

Heh... that's exactly what I'm wondering.......

Does anybody out there have a 3G notebook? If so, can you run CPU-Z on it so that we can see what the memory config is?
