There has been a lot of questions regarding whether or not the IdeaPad Y570 will take 16GB of ram and a dual band wifi card. I am very glad to say that YES it does! I have included the screen shot and part numbers for anyone that would like them.
Ram = Komputerbay 16GB (2x 8GB) PC3-10600 10666 1333MHz SODIMM
204-Pin Laptop Memory 9-9-9-24 for PC only - not MAC - Purchased on Amazon
Dual Wifi Card = Atheros AR5BHB92 802.11A/B/G/N Dual Band 300Mbps Half Mini PCIe Wireless Card - EBay
In order to utilize the new wifi card you will need the bios version 2.10. Grab it here:
