8gb is not really enough imo. it will be 7.5gb after integrated graphic. You should be able to set how much it will be taking in the bios usually. Try to find a deal to upgrade the ssd. Hopefully this one is not directly soldered onto the board. Check that too.

Oh yeah, about that. I believe the RAM is upgradeable, and so is the SSD, so I plan to buy some more RAMs along with a 1TB of SSD
Edit: In the screenshot I included it did say "Up to 64GB of RAM"

Hey hey tech nerds, it's me again. That one dumbass.
I've decided to save money for a new laptop, and I need to know if these specs are good
FYI, Axioo is an Indonesian brand.

Here's what they said on the official website

And here's another one from a website that reviewed this laptop

Should I go for this?
I dunno, I've been stuck with my 10 year old potato laptop that I don't know whether a deal is good or not

On one hand, this one's upgradable (This one has DDR4 RAM)

And on the other, this one's not upgradable, but has better processor (This one has DDR5 RAM)

Choices, choices...

The unupgradable one with the 16gb ddr5 and the 6500m 4gb vram (not shared with system? If not shared, then its good) seem a better deal and has a bigger storage too. So long you stay at 1080p and maybe medium texture and at low-med particle effect.

Graphics have two options: shared (which take up extra RAM) and non-shared, which simply use the amount they need to. The good news are that RAM is the cheapest component, try looking to personalise the laptop (unless you find a bargain) and check all the parts: SSD by default, at least half Terrabyte, 16GB of RAM or more (64GB is perfect) and for processor and graphics in the Western lands we would recommend at least last generation U5 (though by experience splurging for a U7 is extremely worth) and for graphics NVidia 1060 or 1070 if you can (at least you need 1GB to play, last generation games ask for 4GB). Surely you can find the equivalents, just don't buy Intel Graphics Cards, they suck really hard. If you need to cut on something to take the minimum the I'd say the graphics, but the processor is extremely important because it's not only for videogames or quality display, it's required for any program to run smoothly.

fair, but the options he currently has are all amd, and I don't think the indonesian market sells laptops with gtx 1060s or 70s anymore

I wonder if ASUS is reliable these days. Haven't been hearing good stuff about them on my YouTube feed lately.

hmm

they scammed gamersnexus by repairing issues he didn't even know existed, said issues were too little to care about, and overcharging anyway

like let's say you want to send your asus rtx 3060 to them because of something minor

they come back, and give you a big-ass bill because there were issues all around

when really, the "issues" are all fucking microscopic

like they'd charge you 100 extra just because a fucking atom was out of place

at least that's what I think is happening, I don't know

In This Thread (ITT): I want to consult to you guys before I upgrade my laptop's RAM. I've talked to my friend quite extensively about this, but I just want to make sure before committing to it.

First of all, why do I wanna upgrade my RAM? Cuz having 4GB RAM sucks ass. I mainly want to play Wuthering Waves without it looking like a goddamn PowerPoint presentation.

With that out of the way, here's my laptop model:
Laptop-Model.jpg

I did a some searching and I'm pretty sure this model is "upgradable". But here's where I'm having issues: I checked through cmd (using wmic memphysical get maxcapacity) that my laptop can only handle 12GB of RAM
Max-Capacity.jpg

And I only have 1 free slot for RAM. The other one is 4GB and it's soldered to the motherboard.
Task-Manager.jpg

which sucks, cuz I think Wuthering Waves' minimal requirement of RAM is 16GB. But then I searched a bit more and found that I can actually surpass the memory limit. Like
Simple-Google-Search.jpg

And also these two videos (showing a Lenovo Ideapad 3 handling an extra 16GB of RAM, in Indonesian. Pretty convincing).

So here I am, conflicted; should I play it safe and buy a 8GB RAM? Or should I just go ahead and buy a 16GB RAM? Feel free to correct any mistakes I made and please tell me before I pick the wrong choice :notlikethis:
4GB is basically a cellphone. 😖

An old one. 😅

But I would stick with 12 GB. If that's the max. Keep in mind, it really has to do with the motherboard more than anything else.
