Re: z510 ram upgrade to 8gb

I read at one point that i5 machines support up to 8GB and i7 ones up to 16GB. I don't know if this is accurate, but I believe the memory controller is built into the CPU so it could be.

Re: z510 ram upgrade to 8gb

What do you mean by another 8gb? Two 4gb ram modules? There are only two memory slots in this laptop so you'll need 8gb modules.

Re: z510 ram upgrade to 8gb

what I mean is my laptop has only 4gb ram installed for the slot 1. So I have another slot which I can insert another 8gb ram, a total of 12gb.

Yes, I use it practically every day. A lot of web browsing, video capture/editing, and virtual machines.
