It should be on a sticker on the side or bottom of the computer. If this is a custom build you can use the motherboard.

Kaleen:

Increasing the amount of RAM in that laptop from 8 GB to 16 GB is not going to improve speed or performance at all and is going to be a big waste of money.

I doubt if even 4 GB is being used during most of your computing activities.

I second that motion, 8gb is plenty. Getting an SSD for your system drive is a better option.
