I recently purchased my ideapad 320-15abr amd a12-9720p with 6 GB ram
However I oftenly find myself in need for more ram and I would like to upgrade it.
Also the battery is really bad. It lasts for 2 hours maximum without any use or barely using it.
Can I do something about those 2 issues? How much will it cost? Where can I find new battery and ram for this laptop?
Thank you in advance

Welcome to the Community Forums.
I am not sure if the battery capacity is still upgradable as it usually just offer same 2Cell Polymer battery so you may just rather observe battery conservation such as dimming brightness to 70 % and other tips here.
With the ram, it is possible that you have a soldered ram on the motherboard so one available slot is upgradable for you. You can share the machine number/MTM (ex 80XS007DUS) from the sticker or here in parts lookup so we can detail it more if needed.
15ABR: 16GB max / 1866MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, optional 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket
In terms of costing, you may need to check with your local resellers in your place as it would be different internationally. Here is the article on how to check for part and contacting resellers per country. You can also use the OEM part number to search online if not OEM at least have the specification closely matched.
I hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes.
