Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 - 16GB Ram and Dual Band Wifi Card

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:

 

Moderator note: use at your own risk.  In addition to possible technical issues, you may void your warranty.
