Can anyone link me to a guide to upgrading the RAM on my Flex 2 15 (model -59418271)

2015-01-25, 20:13 PM

This laptop ships with 6GB of RAM and I am looking to upgrade to 8GB. I am wondering if anyone has any information on this laptop with respects to required ram type, maximum amount of ram, soldered vs unsoldered and how many ram slots etc.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

You have two slots, which should use DDR3L 1333MHz/1600MHz.

Thanks for your response. Its my understanding that this model will support a maximum of 8 GB of RAM. No possibility of using 2 x 8GB RAM? Also do you know if the ram in this model is soldered on or not?

 

Thanks again.

It seems to say you can use up to 16GB on page 27 (31 of pdf). The replacement instructions on page 42 (46 of pdf) show that they're standard sockets.

This manual is not necessarily correct. I opened up my Flex 2.15 and there is only 1 Ram slot.
