Hi, i would like to buy G50-70 59421783 ( Intel Core i5 4210U (1.70/2.70GHz, 2MB L3)
HD 1TB SATA - RAM 4GB - Display 15,6" wide
Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n - Bluetooth 4.0 - Windows 8.1 64-bit
Graphic card AMD Radeon R5 M230 2GB ) and so I'll become a LENOVO user!!!
Is possible to upgrade it adding more RAM ? Is there another slot available?
Is also possible to replace the HDD with SSD 250 Gb (MZ-7TE250BW 840 EVO) ? Is there any issue related (e.g. connector, driver, size ... )? I red the MZ-7TE250BW 840 EVO is 2,5" : is it perfectly suitable ?
Many thanks in advance for the answer.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums
Regarding your questions:
1. Looking at page 28 of the HMM, the G50-70 uses the following RAM:
DDR3L-1,600 MHz SODIMM × 2 (max 16 GB)
For the upgrade, you will need to look under the hood to identify if you have 2GB (x2), or a single 4GB.stick. Alternatively, you can also use CPU-Z for the identification.
2. For the HDD, G50-70 with machine type 59421783 uses an ST1000LM024 8G 9.5mm 5.4K 1TB HDD.

Thank you very much!
What are the charateristics of the hard disk of the Flex 15 instead ? I found an offer on it, it has already 8GB RAM, so it would be more convinent for me . The machine type should be 59419251 (Core i7-4500U 1,8GHz+15,6 +8GB+500+GeForce 820M+2GB+Windows 8.1) .

Finally I bought Z50-70 59426487 , since the Flex's offer has exipered very fast.
It comes with 4GB ram and I would like to upgrade it with a another module of 4Gb or 8Gb. In the manual:
I found it is a RAM: DDR3L, 1600MT/s , but at page 77 I find hard to understand which is the right module because is a common list for different laptop models.
Which charateristics should it have to be compatible with my Z50-70? thanks

The list of memory modules on page 77 of the HMM are the ones that are tested to be compatible with the Z50-70.
As an alternative to the said list, you can also use other brands of memory modules (eg. Corsair, Kingston, etc.) as long as it's a DDR3L (1.35v) 1600MT/s SODIMM.
In addition, if you're planning to go for 8GB or max it out to 16GB. it's ideal that you purchase two identical RAM for best dual channel compatibility.
