You currently have 1+2 SODIMMs installed and you want to go to 4+4 SODIMMs? If this is a proper kit (always recommended versus two single SODIMMs thrown together (even if same part numbers)), then yes, you should be able to run in dual-channel mode. I am willing to bet you will get more improvement out of simply having 8GB instead of 3GB than you will from having SODIMMs that run in dual-channel mode - but hey, who cares when you're getting both!    ;^)
