There are so many types of SSD outthere, which type is compatible with my laptop? Are there more than 1 HDD extention slot?

 

Which RAM is compatible with my lamptop?

Too much $$$.

A 256 gb should cost you no more than $150. I am on my ipod and wanted to prove that you can get a better deal, so look at this:
http://m.bestbuy.com/m/e/product/detail.jsp;jsessionid=4B75E95C5C9FD2B5047F08F60566DAAD.bbmdotp-app3...

This is still expensive and from Best Buy, but took me 2 sec to find. I suggest you do a little more research. As for ram, I attest to the fact that the z570 can run up to 16 gb ram, which cost me ~$50 with a lifetime warranty on amazon.

Overall, my z570 has a ssd and 16gb ram (both easy to install). I even took out the cd drive and kept the computer Hdd in a $5 cd tray caddy.

The computer is a speed daemon.

I will post some links, of ram and SSDs that will work with the z570, when I get home. If I forget, msg me.

240 gb SSD @ $110 if you fill out both rebates (incuding the $10 site-wide rebate on orders over $50.)
