Toshiba L505 ES5018 MEMORY

Can anyone help me with how much memory this laptop can handle? I am running W7 x64 and would like to get 8 megs installed, but I cannot find out if it can handle that amount. And Tosh does not give me that info in their spec sheets.

That would be 8GB.  Anything more than 4GB of RAM is severe overkill for about 95% of any possible applications you are going to use.  In that laptop, the gpu/cpu is going to be the bottleneck, not the lack of RAM.


The spec sheet I found indicates how much RAM it will handle:  L505-ES5018 Spec Sheet
