I have a cheap notebook: ASUS F452EA-VX021H with 1 x 2GB RAM. Needless to say it's not too snappy with Windows 8.1.
I intend to upgrade the memory but I'm not certain of the maximum capacity and can't find any info online. ASUS website is unhelpful as far as I can tell.
PC Wizard 2013 reports that the maximum is 2 x 2GB. But that software isn't compatible with Windows 8.1 so I'm not sure if it's correct.
2 x 2GB would do but if I can cram in 2 x 4GB it would be nice.
The motherboard is an ASUS X450EA
