Ram Upgrade for Laptop

I know this is not exactly highly regarded, but I am looking to upgrade my ram for my Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN.  Currently, it has 8GBs of ram and I would like to replace it with this ram set below that I have linked below.  Is this possible?  I am not sure, the manual only gives the spec requirements and this meets it, but just want to double check before I drop some cash as I am on a limited college budget.  Thanks for your help!

It should work as far as I can tell. If your laptop doesn't have two SO-DIMM slots than you won't be able to fit both sticks in. Make sure your laptop has two slots and than it should work.

Yep, as answered in this post on the lenovo forums:

32GB max / DDR4 2133MHz, two 260-pin SO-DIMM sockets 


Page 26 of the hardware manual indicates :  DDR4-2400 MHz, SODIMM × 2 (max 32 GB)

Page 40 on procedure guidelines , FRU listed parts on page 66 item 13 

Should work!
