Need help/advice on adding memory to X230 Tablet

I use a X230 Tablet, 3434CTO, with 8 GB of RAM (two 4GB 1600HHz memory sticks, factory installed).

 

My operating system is Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit. 

 

Memory usage is often in the 80%+ range and the machine slows to the point of being functionally useless.

 

I want to move to 12 or, if necessary, 16 GB of RAM.

 

The part recommended by Lenovo is: 

Lenovo 8GB PC3-12800 DDR3 SODIMM Memory (1600MHz)
Part number: 0A65724

 

Do I have to swap out both 4GB memory sticks or can I swap out just one?

 

Thanks in advance.

you can swap out one or both of the old ram. So 12 gigs of ram is just fine. My X230t was shipped with 2+4 gigs configuration.

Thanks -- I wondered if I could use other brands.

 

 

What specs do I need to look at to be sure it is the equivalent of the Lenovo memory?
