Lenovo B590 Memory

First of all, I hope this is the right section for the Lenovo B series laptops, particularly the Lenovo B590. If it's the wrong place I apologize.

 

Does anyone know what RAM is supported in the Lenovo B590? Specifically the 20208 model. I got one of these laptops through my school and it only has 2GB of RAM which simply isn't enough when you are used to a computer rocking 8GB of DDR3 RAM. Does anyone know what the supported RAM specs are for this model Lenovo? I tried to Google it, and I got to Crucials website where they have a set that is 2x4GB, CL11, 1.35v, and 204 pin, which I assumed would be the recommended specs to shoot for, but I wanted to be absolutely positive before I dumped money into some RAM kits.

 

Is Crucial the main RAM supplier for these laptops? Also would memory with a different CL work? I use this computer exclusively for school work, so the cheaper the better for this computer (long as it's of good quality). Does it have to be 1.35v RAM or would 1.5v RAM work as well?

 

I was searching Newegg and found Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT51264BF160B, CL11, 1.35v for $67.99. Would this type of RAM be suppoprted with this laptop? Looks almost identical in terms of specs to the memory on Crucials website for $22 cheaper. There is even cheaper RAM, but it's 1.5v RAM, and I want to make sure I know what will positively work before I drop the money.

 

I'm a noob when it comes to laptop hardware. I've always dealt with desktops. This is the first laptop I've ever owned so I'm learning as I go when it comes to laptop hardware, so any information would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!
