Z61m memory upgrade - available sockets and maxium recognized capacity
I have an unmodified, just as it came in the box, ThinkPad Z61m now running Windows 7 Home Premium and I want to max out the memory. How many modules of what GB capacity can I install? Also, what memory supplier might be recommended if I wasn't planning to purchase them as Options from Lenovo?
The Z61m has two memory sockets which can be populated with 1Gb or 2GB modules in combination to a maximum of 4 GB RAM, however only 3 GB of RAM will be used (regardless of the OS). The 3 GB limit is due to the limit of the Intel chipset used in this generation of system.
