Corsair is good and has postive overall satisfaction rating.

I recommend to go 8 GB since on some occassions (e.g. 20 - 30 tabs of web browsing + virtual machine running), I can actually exceed 4 GB of RAM usage. With 8 GB of RAM, you can also run 2 or more virtual machines without slowing down your Y570. IMO 8 is the sweet spot (enough for most tasks), but if you are doing something radical like using a RamDisk or Adobe After Effects with many layers, you can opt for 16 GB RAM which is the max for Y570.

For 8 GB, you can buy this "Corsair 8GB (2x 4GB) 1333mhz PC3-10666 204-pin DDR3 SODIMM Laptop Memory Kit CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9" which is completely compatible with Y570 for a reasonable price online.

Computer memory upgrades for Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 Laptop/Notebook from

If you click the "show all compatible computer memory button", you'll get more choice, including some DDR3-1600. I'm not sure whether a laptop will run the RAM at the higher frequency, though, so it's possible that lower latency DDR3-1333 will be faster than CAS 11 DDR3-1600 for you.
