    Thanks again for the awnser brummyfan do you know if iI need to buy any certain brand of memory.i have a picture of the brand thats in there now IMGP0001.JPG

  • No, I don't have this particular laptop, you can buy any brand memory as long as they have matching specs, download

    CPU-z to find out the current specs of your memory, then compare the specs with the intended purchase.

    EDIT: Crucial, Samsung, Hynix, Kingston are my suggestions if you are looking for reliable brands but get the cheapest ones as there's not much difference between them.

    The specs says DDR4-1866

    I want to upgrade with Crucial DDR4-2133, 16GB x 2pcs.

    Is that going to be OK?

     

    Thanks.

    Thanks, @brummyfan2.

     

    I also have few other questions:

     

    - CPU Options

    In Malaysia, I don't see unit with FX being sold. Only A12.

    How big performance gain FX-9800p compared to A12 9700? I see it's not much. Can anyone confirm?

     

    - CPU Virtualisation

    I would like to run VirtualBox/VM Ware with 64bit guest OS.

    Is that possible with the locked AMD-V option?

     

    - SSD

    Does A12 version have the SSD slot physically?

    So I can buy my own SSD, install it, then move OS from HD --> SSD?

     

     

     

    I really need this info, as it will definitely a decision point if I should buy this laptop.

  •  Hi,

    If you are looking for mSATA connections, I don't think it is in this model but you could use the DVD drive space for additional storage with a suitable caddy, I have no clue about virtual machines, so you need to wait for an answer from someone experienced with VM-Ware. As for the CPU choice, there's not much difference between them and suggest you to go for an Intel CPU.

    hi brummyfan2,

    not sure if it's mSATA, but the FX version includes SSD + 1TB HDD.

    So I was under assumption that the A12 version is exactly the same hardware.

    Only CPU is A12 and no SSD, but we can add our own SSD.

    Is my understanding correct?

     

    Thanks.
