Hey. I'm looking to upgrade my currently 6GB of RAM on my Ideapad Z500 Lenovo laptop and would like to know how much of ram does my motherboard support and what type should i install.

 

Also want to upgrade my storage from 1 TB to 2 TB if that possible.

Hi bruce90matrix,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Similar to discussions here and here:

 

Product specifications

16GB max7 ; PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3*, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

 

OEM recommended HDD capacity is 1TB as offered here on the FRU list of the hardware manual (page 26 here). 

Resellers like crucial would offer 2 TB so it would be best to check returns options just in case.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards
