I bought a Thinkpad Edge 14 (0578-A99, intel processor 480M) Laptop. Laptop currently has 4 GB of PC3-8500. I want to know if I can upgrade to 8 GB using PC3-8500 DDR3 (running at 1066)? Lenovo website says I cannot. It says I can upgrade if I used DDR3 1333. Is this correct?
Crucial web site says I can use 8 GB of DDR3 1066. Has anyone upgrade the memory to 8 gigs?
Also does the laptop run at 1333mhz if I used the DDR3 1333 memory or will it downgrade back to 1066mhz?
