Y500 hardware updates - help me to choose.

2014-09-05, 20:58 PM

Hi guys,

I want to upgrade my hardware at Y500. I got I7 3630QM, 2x GT650M, 8GB 1600mhz RAM and 1TB hard disk. I woudl like to upgrade RAM's to 16GB or 32GB, but I dont know which one to choose (which mhz or the producent). Arent the 32GBs too much for now, or for laptop? Will I be able to use it anywhere? 

And I woudl like to buy new hard drive (SSD) and instal it at the additional slot (not msata, but I dont remeber the name of it), and I dont know which one to buy, that woudl work great with Y500.

 

Thanks for any advices guys!

You won't be about to put 32gb as you're limited to two memory slots, and the y500 has an mSATA slot and a standard 2.5in sata 3 bay.
