Installed Memory: 4.00GB(What is the max supported)

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

Sorry to hijack as I have the same thinking of upgrade the RAM. So will you able to do it ? If yes, what model type did you purchase ?
