I tried to search similiar forum, but can't find enough information.
My Vostro, 5471. configured with basic configuration:
128GB SSD + 1 TB HDD
I want to know, whether I can upgrade:
1. HDD, to 1TB SSD SATA (WD Blue)
2. RAM, add 8GB RAM. if can, what is the compatible list?
current resource meter, shown 80-90% consumed RAM, and HDD often above 80%, especially when I run designer tool, such as Adobe software.
by the way, I live in Indonesia.
Welcome to the Dell Community @gunum
Yes 1TB WDB SSD will work just fine.
32GB memory is max.

hi thanks for the link.
I confused, some said incompatible, others said compatible, for RAM issue.
however, is it better use 1 existing ram module, and another is new one?
will 32GB RAM bring significant better performance ? or just more bring heat rather than performance
16GB will show some performance increase.
Unless you are rendering video, using CAD/CAM or a heavy gamer 32GB will not be noticeable!!!
It is always best to use marching pairs of memory.
You would increase performance by taking advantage of "Dual Channel" with matching pairs of memory.
