Ram and SSD upgrade

Hi,

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

At the moment you have one 8GB module.

Example of RAM:

On page 81 of service manual you can see the steps to install the RAM

There is no M2 slot, however I recommend replacing the HDD with a 2.5" SATA3 SSD such as the 2.5" Samsung 860 Evo or similar. It will give a great boost to the everyday performance of the notebook (more than the extra RAM)

Example:

You can then reinstall the OS on the SSD

or clone the old drive to the new one.

 

Hope it helps,

David
