Hey Remo,

  Welcome to the forums,

I would happily tell you that the G460 supports 8GB PC3 - 8500 DDR3 SODIMM 204pin 

Make sure you are running the latest BIOS and a 64bit OS to address the full 8gb ram

I have gone through this spec doc earlier too... but it talks about i5-480M, but mine is 430M, I dont know the real difference it makes and so was skeptikal whether these two are same... Are you sure i can still have 2*8GB RAMs on my sockets...One of the tech support guy from lenovo i chatted earlier was saying motherboard doesn't support more than 4GB RAM on a socket
