RAM upgrade for G500 Ideapad

Hello, does Lenovo G500 Ideapad use DDR3 or DDR3L RAM memories? I want to upgrade from 4 to 8 GB and I just want to make sure I got the right memory cards

Your user guide:

http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/g410_g510_ug_en.pdf

page 35 states DDR3L.

page 86, part 16 is memory.

 

PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz

That's odd...in the specs on this site, for the laptop they say regular DDR3s not DDR3L. http://shopap.lenovo.com/in/en/laptops/lenovo/g-series/g500/#tab-tech_specs

The specs left the L off.  I have found referencing the user guide to be more accurate.  I took the specs from the page you referenced and added the L.
