Hi,

I am planning to buy an Asus u43 laptop in the near future but the model that Iam buying only comes with 4G of RAM. And I hope to upgrade it to either 6 or 8 G of RAM.

So I have two questions to ask about this:

a ) What kind of RAM stick would I be looking for?

b ) Is it hard to replace RAM in a laptop?

Any help would be useful.
Thanks,
Nukie

From what Im reading, you can't-according to neweggs product page 4 gigs is the max suported by that laptop. In most cases, 4 gigs is fine-but if you really need more you may have to choose a different model laptop.
