I have W700ds pulled from the dead and want to start using it again and wish to upgrade it with RAM, after reading online I noticed its max is 8GB RAM which i found on crucial.com, any better brands?
And the tricky question, when i was looking for W520 RAM upgrade docs used to say its max is 16GB yet i found some official reviews/vids from lenovo that says its max is 32GB ram (different than lenovo's service center staff were saying)
So back to W700DS, can it hold more than 8GB Ram?
So,any recommendation to replace its 500GB 7200 disk? any brand you recommend?

But it also has a PM45 chipset, which does not recognise RAM-modules larger than 4GB, so you are "stuck" with max. 8GB RAM.
Replace the HDD with a 250GB/500GB/1TB Samsung EVO-850 or EVO-860.
