Hi zyonneo , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums .

 

Would you have the machine number to be specific on the model type?

As per product specifications G470 (Machine model number 4328) :

8GB max7 / PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

 

Possible SSD upgrade arealso being offered by other resellers for this model . 

Lifetime of SSD would depend on several factors and you can calculate its lifetime as per usage.

Costing would be difficult to assess depending on availability and pricing on your location where you can consult your IT department or local service center too. 

 

Update us soon as convenient. 

 

Regards

Hi zyonneo , 

 

Greetings. 

 

As per specification (page27) :

DDR3-1066/1333MHz SODIMM socket x 2 (max 4GB per slot)

OEM upgrade to max 8 GB done by adding another 4 GB preferable same specification as what you already have.

 

SSD upgrade is also a good option but best check on the pricing for each capacity and return options from 3rd party resellers .

 

Offered graphic card for your model : Up to ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6370M 1GB which you already have.

It is the same graphic chip soldered on the board itself.

 

Regards
