Hi, I'm really interested in the G770 as my new laptop and I'm wondering if anyone can confirm it being able to take 16GB of RAM? The specs say a maximum of 8 but there are websites selling two sticks of 8GB saying it can handle up to 16GB. Also I'm curious if the video card on the Radeon model is one of those MXM video cards that you can remove and upgrade in the future? Thank you all.

Hello cq7911 and welcome to community,
The laptop supports maximum memory 8GB PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets.

I have a Lenovo G770 and as of today it has 16GB of memory.
I just installed 2 8GB sticks of DDR3 1333MHz and windows sees the memory just fine.
I used GEIL memory that I received from new egg for $79.99 for the pair.

Yes, the system will run 16GB of Ram.
However, it causes Crashes.
When installing the BIOS Mod, you can see both of the 8GB sticks available.
However, in the "Information" tab, it will see the 16GB sticks as 6GB instead.
This is what is causing the system crashes.
I was going to remove the CMOS Battery and try to get it to recignize the 16GB that way.
However, as I soon found out, the CMOS Battery is soldered to the motherboard, which is a dumbass thing for the manufacture to do.
The motherboard will run 16GB of ram, however, it will crash on you often with Memory related issues.
If you are OK with the crashes, then go for it, otherwise, stick with the 8GB that Lenovo recommends for the system.
Have a good one all.
