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  …

 

But I'm a little confused  … 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

That is the way to go.

 

Between the PC3-8500 and PC3-10600 it is a difference in clock speeds, but a normal user won't see a difference. For someone overclocking the higher number would be better.

Not all "pc3-10600  memory" is exactly the same. That's why we were referring you to Crucial.com. If their recommended solutions do not work, they refund your money.
