Hello Lenovo community. You are my last hope!
I digged in the internet and searched through the whole Lenovo site, but I havent find the answer. I have Lenovo B50-80 i5-5200U with only 4GB RAM, type 80EW, serial number MP******. I'd like to upgrade RAM, but I can't find how much of it I can install. I've alrady determined that I need DDR 3 RAM, but how much? Once I've read that I can install up to 16GB, but then I found another opinion, that my computer can have only 8 GB. What is the thruth? What's more, I don't know if the memory chould be 1,5V or 1,35V.
Moderator note: serial number removed to prevent abuse. For reference associated MT-M is 80EW03NPPB.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I've got an another issue connected to the previous one. It's written in the user guide that "Two memory channels are supported. Both channels should have a memory of the same size and rank". Does it mean that (in case more than 8GB is supported) I can't have 4GB in one slot and 8GB in another?

First, I have never used this model, but to answer all the questions, there are two slots and a 5th generation CPU and chipset. You should be able to use 2X16GB = 32GB of memory.
8GB + 4GB will work fine but you will not be able to use dual-channel access. In real life operation, dual-channel advantages are more theoretical than actual. You are unlikely to notice the difference.
