1) Can I upgrade my memory to 8 or 16 GB?
2) If I can, should I only be looking for DDR3 units?
3) When I'm looking at memory like 16 GB, i see options like 4x4 GB or 2x8 GB. What are the differences here? Pros/Cons? Etc.

Thanks!
Re number 3: you need the 2x8GB option, you only have 2 RAM slots, so there is no physical way to use 4x4GB RAM chips.
