Re: RAM

Hi Reda_Habila , 

 

Greetings. 

 

In addition , similar softwares like CPU z ( speccy , belarc advisory etc) would be reading the chipset capability that it can handle and not the physical design of the systemboard similar to this discussion.

 

As usually noted , "refer to manufacturer's manual" is indicated since the design is deifferent from each manufacturers but same Intel chipset is offered . Notice from the bus architecture of your manual (page37) as  Direct Media Interface (DMI) X4, 2.5Gb/s on how CPU would communicate on the northbridge.

 

Each OEM customize their board to build a better design specially for laptop that suppose to be mobile , sleek and small for user's purpose as additional slots would just make it bulkier .

 

As per hardware manual : 

• DDR3 1066/1333 SODIMM (x2), Support Dual Channel

• DDR3 1333 SODIMM (x1) (Select models only)

 

Regards

From the hardware manual under specifications (page 37) :

Standard memory  : 

• DDR3 1066/1333 SODIMM (x2), Support Dual Channel  

• DDR3 1333 SODIMM (x1) (Select models only)

You can physically check it on your model board for verification.
