Hello
I plan on getting an E420 and i want to upgrade the ram myself. Problem is i don't know which type is compatible with the E420. Can anyone enlighten me on which type i need? Any specific recommendations?
Thank you

The Service manual for the E420s (Note: a different laptop) states "4-GB DDR3-1333 SDRAM SO-DIMM" so I suspect that it would be similar for the E420. Note on the E420s you have to remove the keyboard to get at the RAM.

The E420 will take DDR3-1333 MHz SDRAM SO-DIMM (PC3-10600) modules. It has two SO-DIMM slots for a total of 8 GB. The only memory that i have tried is Kingston Value RAM, and it has worked well.

just threw in adata ddr3 1333 and it works great! P.S. the top ram stick is a lot harder to get in than the bottom! nearly thought i had a bad stick until i realized i didnt jam it in all the way
