Hey guys, I found out you can only upgrade ssd and ram on laptops, and I'm having trouble deciding I opened my laptop and saw that the sticks are 2 x 4gb pc3l-12800s, then I went to amazon and found a few options but I can't decide, can you help me get some insight? Also are they even compatible?:
You might need to stop looking at a 16GB ram kit, since the maximum your laptop will support officially is 8GB. In which case you need to look for a DDR3-1600MHz 1.65v or 1.5v or 1.35v. As for the links you'd parsed, those brands look subpar. If you're set on wanting to get 16GB's of ram, you should look at Corsair, G.SKill, Crucial, Transcend, Team group or Elpida's as brands. Considering you're on 8GB, you either leave it as is or you gamble and purchase a reliable brand's 16GB kit, with the above italicized information.
