There are 2 slots.  Each can have a 4gb, 8gb or 16GB DIMM.  If you have 1X4GB, you can also add an 8GB to give you 12GB.  I like Corsair Vengeance.  Other people like other brands

Thanks, Spidey101

 

My model no is 20H1004UIG Type 20H1. So, if I buy one 8 GB 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, it will be ok or not.

Re: RAM up-gradation for Thinkpad E470

One 8GB will be fine or you can add it to your 4GB module to get 12GB.  Either will work - you have 2 slots.

Re: RAM up-gradation for Thinkpad E470

Hello Satyabrata,

According to your questions, these are my opinions.

 

- How many slots of RAM I have?

--Thinkpad E470 has 2 RAM slots.

 

- What is the maximum capacity of Ram that each slot support. 

---each slot support max 16GB RAM

 

- My laptop came with a 4GB DD4 2133 mhz Ram. Can I install another 16GB DDR4 RAM with 2133 mhz in another slot? 

--yes you can install but check the existing RAM frequency. In my E470, it has 4GB Samsung 2400MHz RAM, so you need to install with the same frequency otherwise the laptop will use the lesser RAM frequency.

 

- Which company ram is best recommended for the Thinkpad E470 laptop.

--Corsair is the best RAM I ever used and Crucial, Gskill, Kingston HyperX are also good.
