Hardware updates to Flex 3 15.6

I recently ordered a Flex 3 15.6" 2 in 1. The model is 80k40007us. I will be getting it on Monday. Is it possible to replace the drive with an ssd drive? If so,  what size does it need to be , 2.5" or something else? I would also like to upgrade the RAM from 8gb to 16gb. Can this be done or is the RAM permanently attached to the motherboard  as it is with some other laptops?

Hi ElAguila64 , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

It is possible to use SSD storage Ideapad 500-15ACZ Laptop (ideapad) - Machine Type 80K4 (MTM80K40007US) using similar caddy similar to this working with 2.5" up to 9.5mm (9.5mm/7mm or less) height SATA . 

 

Based on the harware specification

DDR3L-1333 MHz / 1600 MHz SODIMM × 2 (max 16 GB)  

 

All needed is to add similar spec RAM as what is on it for compatibility or from FRU list (item 11 page 95) with

both 2 slots changeable for upgrades or swapping.  

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

One other question about the RAM.  Is it 204 pin or 240 pin?

Hi ElAguila64 , 

 

Not sure if the BIOS may be able to accomodate it not unless there's one that have already tried .

What we are sure that would work are on the hardware manual item11 page 95.

 

5M30G18424 RAM M471B1G73EB0-YK0 8GB DDR3L 1600
11202707 RAM HMT41GS6BFR8A-PB/RD 8GB DDR3L 1600
11202450 RAM RMT3160ME68FAF-1600 8GB DDR3L 1600
11201304 RAM MT16KTF1G64HZ-1G6E1 8GB DDR3L 1600

 

Regards
