Hi



Here is the service manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02657339.pdf

Yes you can upgrade upto 8GB (2*4GB) if the operating system installed is 64-bit
There are two slots in the memory bay
Supports dual channel boost if two identical RAMs of same size are put

Type: DDR3, SO-DIMM SDRAM
Non-ECC, UNBUFFERED

Speed: your processor can run RAM only at 1066MHz, if 1333MHz is put it'll downgrade to 1066MHz

Capacity: upto 8GB only if OS installed is 64-bit
In 32-bit OS, system can "take" only upto 4GB.

If your OS is 64-bit, you can add extra 4GB in other slot to make total RAM to 6Gb too.


Brands: Hynix, Elpida, Kingston, G.Skill, Crucial

Here are some of them:
