I plan to upgrade my Y50 RAM from 8GB to 16 GB & paln to change my existing HDD to a new one.
So I want to ask;-
1. What type or spec of RAM (8GB RAM) do I need to get for Y50? Do Y50 RAM have it own spec or it spec just as same as other laptop? Can I Use this RAM?
2. Can Y50 use WD Black² Dual Drive – Solid State Drive + HDD ? Does it size fit Y50?
* My Y50 Spec ;-
Intel i7-4710HQ 2.5~3.5GHz
Nvidia GTX860M DDR5 4GB
8GB DDR3L, Up to 16GB
* Currently my Y50 installed with 1TB Seagate SSHD & 8GB DDR3L

You can download and run a program called CPUID. After installing it and launching the app, select the memory tab and it will provide you with the details on the ram and what speed is already in there. You can go faster in speed and up to 16GB of Ram (what I am running atm on my Y50).
HDD you can use any 2.5 inch HDD, I went with the Samsung 850 EVO. If your going the HDD to SSD route, buy the SSD with the data migration kit and cable. Will make your life a lot easier.
