hi i have a lenovo g40 45 laptop  and want to add some more ram to it in order to have a better gaming experience because as of now it is not the best at all. i was wondering how much ram would be suffiencient and cost effect for this laptop. also it would it be wise to upgrade from windows 8.1 to windows 10 when it is out ??

To quote from Lenovo's specs for this computer at -




You can fit "Up to 8GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz" so the answer is it will support up to 8 GB of RAM. The specs I looked at were silent on the number of RAM slots on the mobo. Most of this model range seem to ship with 4 GB installed so you have the option to add more.


As for the question of Win 10, that is up to you. I suggest you take a look at the topics in the Win 10 section of BC to see what people think. I am running Win 7 HP but I am thinking of building or re-building either this computer or a new one sometime in the early part of next year and will probably go to 10 then.
