HP 255 G3 Ram Upgrade

Looking to upgrade the RAM in an old HP laptop. The laptop only has one RAM slot unfortunately. Could anyone recommend a cheap RAM stick? It's currently running off of 4 gig.

Thanks in advance

You need DDR3L (low-voltage) not regular DDR3 SO-DIMM

But IMHO you're better off getting an SSD and saving up for the next build/laptop: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07KQX...ogi&th=1&psc=1
You'll see better real-world upgrades from the read speed of SSD.
