Flex 2 15 RAM Upgrade

2015-01-12, 12:54 PM

Hi, Any help appreciated please?


I have a new laptop Flex 2: 15 core i7 with 8gig of RAM. 


I want to upgrade the RAM further.  I know here are 2 slots in the laptop for the RAM (currently at 2 x 4gig) so i will remove one of these and insert a 8gig memory upgrade making the total laptop RAM to 12gig.


My question is this - i need to buy the correct RAM type to make sure it is compatible and performs as expected etc.  I know the existing is 4gig DDR3L 1600Mhz ....  is there a specific type or memory i should be looking to purchase to ensure it is in line with the existing and also compatible?  e.g. should i just buy another 8gig card but as long as its DDR3L and 1600mhz then all would be ok??  Or is there other considerations i need to review first?  I dont want to go and buy a ram upgrade from a shop to find that it isnt compatible etc. 

Im ot that technical so unsure what else i need to consider when buying the RAM.


Thank you in advance for your support,
