Hi there, I have Lenovo B570e(site telling me b570e2) With i3-2328M CPU and LENOVO Emerald Lake (version FAB1). I'm so unlucky so i have only 1 slot for ram (never lucky :c ). I want to buy 8gb, but i don't know what ram will work at my notebook. How can i choose? And what RAM will work at my notebook ?

Hi Basik ,
Welcome to the Community Forums .
Would you have your machine number or MTM ?
For B570e2 (machine type :5215) memory specifications:
4GB max7 / PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket;
Other resellers may offer 8GB but would leave disclaimers *Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory so best to check return options just in case .

Hi Basik ,
Other resellers like crucial would have their own tools but again they have disclaimers to consult OEM (*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory) as others would say 4GB similar to the Lenovo product specifications.
Considering just the CPU support i3-2328M actually have 16 GB max but BIOS may not accept such.
I would not suggest purchasing without proper return options just in case but if you have a spare, then that would be worth a try as long as the with same specs ( PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3).

Okay, here we are. On my own risk i bought this ram.
Memory module works fine, i'm satisfied.
But at "memory speed" i have 800 MHz is this normal? (600+ on my previous 1333).
Also i want to ask, can i upgrade my CPU? Can i replace my i3-2328m on i5 or something else?
My gpu (nvidia 410m ) i can't upgrade anyway ?
Thanks you all.

DDR are Double Data Rate so the 800 Mhz x2 is also 1600Mhz speed so it is ok.
Upgrading your i3-2328m is also available as an option listed from the hardware manual (item11 page77-78).
Listed also are the part number that you can use for an OEM CPU part.
Such is also listed as upgrade path that worked on the same socket.
Similarly discussed here, GPU is soldered so it cannot be upgraded.
I am sure you are enjoying the difference of having 8 GB ram as a sure sweet spot for multiple browsing, virtuals and photoshop projects.
