Lenovo IdeaPad 520-15IKB 81bf004rri

Hello!

 

I'm looking to buy this Lenovo IdeaPad 520-15IKB 81bf004rri - http://www.cel.ro/laptop-laptopuri/laptop-lenovo-ideapad-520_15ikb-intel-core-kaby-lake-r-_40_-8th-g...

 

I would like to upgrade it with an 128/256 GB SSD - can you please advise which type does this laptop support and maybe even recommend a specific product?

 

Also I'd like to know what's the maximum amount of RAM it support.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

 

Looking forward to becoming a proud Lenovo owner.
