Just seen that maximum upgradable ram for this laptop is 16GB on this website: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/ideapad-510s-(14-inch)#memoryResults
Anyone able to concur on this? Want to check that it's absolutely true - if it is then my problem's sorted
I'm looking to buy a laptop before university and have decided on this one: http://www.johnlewis.com/lenovo-ideapad-510s-laptop-intel-core-i7-8gb-ram-256gb-ssd-14-full-hd/p2839973
Specification wise everything is perfect for my needs (music recording/production), but I have a couple of queries that I'd really appreciate an answer to before I buy.
1: I've heard that paging to an SSD drive will wear it out very quickly, and obviously I'd rather this didn't happen! Would 8GB RAM be enough to prevent this from happening? I'd have storage on a uni-wide database/a personal portable hard disk available. Most intensive applications I'd be running would be my DAW (presonus studio one) and maybe a couple games - and not at the same time. If not then this brings me onto question 2:
2: Could I upgrade the amount of RAM on this laptop? I know it can be done on other laptops but does anyone know the maximum upgradable RAM capacity on this laptop?
I don't know too much about the technicalities of laptops/computers so sorry if I got any technical descriptions wrong and please correct me if I have.
Many thanks in advance
