Hi, i'm using lenovo b570e Intel Core i3 (2nd Gen) 2330M / 2.2 GHz and 4GB ram. But i can't run android studio on it as it is not only slow but its too slow. Currently i don't have budget to buy higher specs laptop i just want to ask 2 things which will be better for me?

1: Shall i Upgrade to 8GB ram (as max memory supported it is 8GB)
2: Shall i use 4GB ram and use real android device instead of emulator?

If i choose option 1 then please tell me which ram should i add to get max performance current ram installed is DDR3 SDRAM, 1333MHz

I did answer something eerily similar on CNET so here's the rundown. For this laptop I'd change the HDD to SSD and max out the RAM for such work.

As to use the real Android device I do that because it's fast and I get a better feel for how the app is going to work IRL.

commented: Thanks a lot, but i read online that using a real device has drawback that you can not check how you app will work on every device? +0
