I am willing to upgrade my yoga 500-14ISK RAM to be 4 gb? I have noticed that in hardware manual my laptop memory can be upgraded to max gb. I have two option to buy:
1. Corsair RAM with spec: 8GB DDR3L 1600MHz PC3-128000, 1,35V, SO-DIMM; https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CMSO8GX3M1C1600C11-1600MHz-PC3-12800-204-Pin/dp/B00EHJ5U0K/ref=sr_1_1... ;or
Based on your or friend's experience, which one that will be compatible with my lenovo yoga 500-14isk? Will both of them work to my laptop?
Please help me.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Based on the specs, PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket, both RAM you mentioned should work but we recommend RAM listed on page 84 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) here, https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_500-14isk_500-15isk_hmm_201509.pdf as it is tested working for Yoga 500-14ISK.

Thank you for your your fast respons. Can you help me to send the link of the ram brand since I don't know how to identify the brand based on the FRU code ? If you know where to buy the product, it would help me. I plan to buy it in Indonesia to avoid the custom duty. If I know the ram brand mentioned in page 84, I can buy the product in online marketplace in Indonesia.
