For a Lenovo B590, Model number 59410449, which has the i5 processor, what is the maximum amount of memory that is supported?
Mine shipped with 6 GB. I'm worried that if the max is 8GB, I will have to buy two 4GB memory sticks.
Does anyone know what the maximum for this model number is? Am hoping it is 16 GB!

Hi AC2000 ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Based on the product specification for this model , memory :
8GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3, non-parity, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets; * System automatically clocks down for processors with 1333MHz memory controller
This is the recommended Max memory supported for your model eventhou some processors can handle more (example : 15- 4310U handling 16 GB) since certain consideration are maintained by the systemboard and BIOS for full functionality and avoid non essential upgrades for users.
Your 6 GB ram probably have 2GB and 4 GB (PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3) at the moment so you can simply match the a similar 4GB to max it to 8GB and be able to use dual channel synch for faster communication and transfer.
Hope this helped answer your query.
Update us what works best for you.
