Hello Siddiqui

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

A RAM upgrade alone will not make much of a difference, basically, if you have more RAM, then the more programs and heavier programs you can work on without encountering any issues.


The general speed of a computer is determined by all other components not just the RAM size available for it to use.

Most importantly the processor, the faster it is, the faster it can work and process whatever you need it to.


Then there are SSDs as well, which can be used in conjuction with a HDD or by itself as well.

These can help speed up the read/write part of things when you`re running a program.

You can read about it in more detail here: LINK


I hope this helps clear some of it up.
