Hi,

The notebook supports max 16GB of DDR3L-1600MHz RAM (2x8GB)

You can not insert DDR4 RAM as it is different in size and would not be recognized.

Yes I would upgrade to at least 8GB or more which will give a performance boost.

Example of RAM:

Another upgrade you should perform if your system has a regular Hard Drive, would be to replace it with an SSD.

 

Hope it helps,

David
