"L" is just the designation used for the RAM  which consumes lesser voltage compared to the DDR3.  So yes, you can use DDR3L in your laptop.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad S510p Ram Upgrade

I would like to add memory to my ideapad s510p (no touch), so keep the factory memory (samsung m471B5173bh0-yk0, 4g, ddr3L, 1600 mhz) and add a new memory ram (8g, maybe crucial or kingston) for a total of 12g.


what is the best choice to add to existing memory to work good together? 1600 or 1866 mhz ?


can the ideapad work good with one ram 1600mhz (factory) + one ram 1866 mhz (new ram) ?


or is it better to add a new 1600mhz ram (like the existing factory ram) ?


Thanks for the information and advice
