Z500 RAM UPGRADE

Hi everyone.

I'm an Italian Guy.My name's Nico

 

Well... two days ago i bought a Z500 laptop with this specification 

Processore Intel Core i7-3632QM / 2.20GHz (fino a 3.2GHz) 6MB Cache - Display 15,6" wide HD LED - RAM 8GB - Scheda video NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M 2GB dedicata + Intel HD Graphics 4000 - Hard Disk 1 TB - Bluetooth 4.0 - Altoparlanti Dolby Home Theater v4 2W - HDMI - 2 USB 3.0 - 1 USB 2.0 - Windows 8 64-bit

 

as you see i've a 8gb Ram incluse. I'd like to upgrade to 16gb.

What kind of Ram i need? Do i have to find the same 8gb it has inside? 

does official warranty center provide to make this work? 

Basically,what i ve to do?

thank you

Welcome to Lenovo forums

 

first of all congrats on your new machine, then the max. ram for your machine is 8GB and you cannot upgrade it to 16 GB

 

Thanks

Dear Nico 1973
