  1. I think better to get 10600 to be on safe, I saw one guy which couldn't run 12800 RAM in his laptop, it caused a BSOD, also performance won't increase so much.

    Per ASUS's product specifications page, you can only have a maximum 4GB (2x2GB) of RAM installed. This is likely due to either the motherboard chipset or cpu maximum limit.
