Default Need help with my Lenovo laptop memory upgrade SL-510

Hello Everyone and good day J

I have a lenovo laptop model SL-510 TYPE 2847-BWG

And I want to Upgrade his Memory

So I have been read Detailed specifications in the site of lenovo about my laptop model

( i attached the link in the end of the post )

and see that my laptop model support up to 8GB maximum memory with Dual-channel capable

Then I noticed under the specifications this details :



Memory
  • PC3-8500 Non-Parity (NP) Double Data Rate Three (DDR3) Technology
  • PC3-10600 Non-Parity (NP) Double Data Rate Three (DDR3) Technology
  • Dual-channel capable
  • Two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
  • 1 GB, 2GB, 3GB, 4GB,
  • Supports up to 8GB maximum memory

So of course I would rather upgrade to 8gb ram with 2x4GB

Because I just have two slots Ö

But I'm a little confused Ö What's better? The PC3-8500 or the PC3-10600 ?

And should I take two sticks of the same model ? same company ?

for they be work on dual Together ?

Of course, I'd love you to recommend me suitable types of memories models

And Recommended Companies

PC10600 is faster.

It's best to buy a pair of identical sticks (they don't have to be in a kit), but if you're buying the cheapest available then there's little point looking for two different companies. Just buy two at the same time.

I'll miss a few I suspect, but the following brands tend to be okay: "Kingston", "Corsair", "Crucial", "G.Skill", "OCZ"

In all honestly, you won't notice any difference between the 2 RAM speeds besides maybe in artificial benchmarks.

Like cb600 said, you might as well buy a kit with 2x4GB; different RAM companies used to matter more in DDR2 days, but not so much now in DDR3, as tech is a bit more forgiving nowadays with different speeds/timings/voltages (though its always best to get them as close as possible).

+1 to G.Skill, as well.

Any of the above will serve your purpose fine, pick whichever is cheapest!

They'll all be compatible in their respective pairs, so dual channel mode shouldn't be a problem.
