What is maximum RAM supported in Ideapad Z500

Hello,

 
I have a Lenovo Ideapad Z500 (Model name: 20202) which came with 4GB RAM. I'm thinking of upgrading the RAM and when I checked online, at some places it said the maximum supported RAM is 8GB, while at other places it was said to be 16GB.
 
So can you please let me know what is the maximum RAM supported by my laptop (Lenovo Ideapad Z500, Model name: 20202)?
 
Thanks,
 
Peter

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

According to the Z500 PSREF specification sheet your model will support up to 16 GBs of memory.  Please refer to the PSREF for additional information starting on page #109.  Here is the link.....

A popular seller of PC memory also confirms that your model will support up to 16 GBs of memory.  Here is the link to Crucial's website.....

Sorry I didn't see your additional posting. 

 

Since ALL Z500 models listed in the PSREF are showing that they can have a maximum of 16 GBs of memory and Crucial's website confirms this, no doubt your machine will support 16 GBs of memory as well.
