Hi guys, thanks for reading

As the title suggests Im very close to buying this laptop http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/products/computers/satellit...

However there is one thing that bothers me, ddr3l. I cant seem to find any ddr3l on the market!
If I cannot find ddr3l does that mean Im stuck with the 4gb? Or is it possible (in this computer) to replace the ddr3l with a normal ddr3? The toshiba website suggest that this might not be possible.

I can see hard drive and the graphics card are not that great however can I update both of these at a later date?

Any opinions on the computer are also really welcome (trying to find out if its loud)

DDR3L should be a 204 pin SO-DIMM stick, which almost every laptop has, and should be found on any computer component store, or like amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-1600MHz-PC3-1...
DDR3L uses less volts, which is more power saving, but costs more than a standard DDR3 module

You should find DDR3L at any store selling RAM sticks. Here is also an example: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias...
Just to add, DDR3 is not compatible to DDR3L. If inserting the wrong module, it can damage the computer, and standard DDR3 module are bigger anyways.
