A few questions regarding Ideapad Z570

2011-10-06, 5:05 AM

I recently purchased the Ideapad Z570 and I had a couple of questions:

 

Note that I live in India so expenses/availability in India would be helpful. :)

 

  • I have the Core i5-2410 processor. Can I upgrade it to Core i5 2430 and if yes at what cost?
    As a sub question is there a major difference between the two processors?
  • Can I change/upgrade to a different display panel? Is there an option for a Matte/Anti-Glare panel or perhaps an IPS panel?
  • At present I have 4 GB DDR3 RAM (2x2GB). How much will it cost to upgrade to 4x4GB i.e 8GB DDR3?

Any Z570 owners here? Have you'll done any aftermarket or official Lenovo upgrades? :)

Please check for the specifications that came with your configuration in that they will list what you can upgrade for the RAM

Oh yes I can upgrade. Max supported memory is 8GB. What I would like to know is the price of Lenovo sold RAM and other brands and basically which is better. I guess this is a question that can be answered with research. :) However the others especially screen and processor upgrades I was hoping somebody can answer. Basically I bought a laptop that had 2 year extended warranty as an offer. But I later found out that the i5-2430 processor was just slightly costlier (just about Rs 500) than the i5-2410 config. So I was wondering if I can still upgrade through Lenovo for a small price. Also the screen, whether I can install a IPS-panel on this laptop or maybe a Matte screen.
