it has been provided with one RAM 4GB 2rx8 1333.
I have a spare one RAM 2GB 1rx8 1333
after surfing online found that there will be some voltage diffrences & BIOS setup as well and suggested to contact manafacturer to ensure correct matching

Hi urkiran1982 ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per technical specifications :
So adding your 2GB 1rx8 1333 to current 4GB =6GB would help having more resources running at the same time specially on virtual applications and multiple browsers . It would be an advantage to take max 8GB (can even run to 16 GB /2x 8gb ) . Hardware manual for reference (page65) and fru list do not limit you haveing an OEM brand as it may be different as long as the same specification (do not require low voltagewith DDR3L as it specs to regular 1.5v DDR3 ) .
