Here is what SIW (System Information For Windows) utility shows
We can see that maximum amount of installed RAM can be 16GB and maximum memory module size can be 8GB.
Here is what official documentation shows
We can see in official documentation that 8GB is maximum memory capacity and it is double-channel capable.
Here is Crucial.com scan
We can see that 8GB is maximum memory size and that it is not double-channel capable, but it states that PC3-10600 (1333Mhz) memory can also be installed.
Here is Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 M 330 processor's official specifications page
It tells that processor can support maximum of 8GB of memory.
Here are my questions:
1. What is the maximum memory does my laptop support?
2. Is my system capable of dual-channel memory?
3. Can my system also support memory of up to 1333Mhz?

What's the maximum amount of RAM that can be installed and used in G560? Is it 8 GB as the manual says, or is it more than that (as limited by the installed OS, which e.g. in 64-bit Win7 could be more)?
I currently have 2 modules with 4 GB each. Windows 7 system properties says:
Installed Memory (RAM 8.00 GB (7.87 GB usable)
What exactly does the "usable" part refer to?
Also, what's the highest speed of DDR3 that can be used here? Currently mine are at ~667 MHz.
