hi stephengrnwy


From page 27 of the hardware maintenance manual, the Flex 2 15 supports up to 16GB DDR3L (1333MHz/1600MHz) SODIMM × 2

   - Link to picture


As the machine already have an 8GB module, I recommend you check under the hood if that 8GB is a 4GBx2 or an 8GBx1. If it's the former then you will need to get an 8GB module if you're aiming 12GB, or just get a 2x8GB dual channel kit fo max it out to 16GB, otherwise, another 4GB module will suffice.

  - Sample item (4GB DDR3L)

  - Sample item (8GB DDR3L)
