Hi MIK1984,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Product specification shows:

Memory: 16GB max / 2133MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, optional 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket. 

 

81de00vtak variants shows that you currently have 4GB soldered on the motherboard and there is a single ram slot available to add 8GB DDR4 so you can reach a total of 12GB max. 16GB max are for those without soldered ram.

You can check OEM recommended ram listed here (click on memory under commodity type). 

 

You can also upgrade current HDD to a SATA storage drive similar here as an upgrade option.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

As mentioned above, you can upgrade. Can you give your current specs for your laptop, so we can see the possible upgrade options. Thanks.

It has a 7th gen core i3, 4 GB ram and 1 TB HDD (5400 RPM). I want the ram to be 8 GB working in dual channel and preferably 256 SSD alongside 1 TB HDD. Memory upgrade is possible as told, SSD upgrade too but can I have SSD+HDD Combo. Thanks

I guess you can get the 256 GB m.SSD, as long as your motherboard has that slot and supports it. Don't forget to transfer Windows OS to the SSD for faster performance. The RAM is possible, just make sure you get the right MHz. if RAM is 2133 MHz, buy a 4 GB 2133MHz RAM, and vice versa.

Hi All,

 

Greetings.

 

The image provided above is the same available systemboard for Machine Type Model: 81DE00VTAK . The motherboard part number 5B20R19918 MBL81DE I37020U UMA D4GNOK. 

 

 
I do not see any m.2 ssd slot to add additional storage for SSD + HDD combo. It has 4GB memory chips soldered on-board and allows you to add 4GB 2133MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable option or even 8GB if you need.
 
Regards

Lenovo Denmark informed me that this model was tested with up to 16 GB so I REALLY hope they are right as I ordered a 16GB stick of DDR4 2400hz as they also told me that it is OK that the RAM is faster than the 2133hz Samsung that is in it, the non soldered clock.

Hi McDanish,

 

Greetings.

 

You may also share the MTM (ex. 81de00vtak) of your machine soon as you have your ordered 16GB ram. OEM only offered the 16GB on a motherboard that do not have soldered 4GB so it would be interesting how it would go.

 

Fellow members of the Community would certainly be thankful for the reference and updates from your machine in terms of functionality and recognition of the 16GB upgrade.

 

Regards

Sorry, I couldnt find any 16GB blocks, they sent me a mail as soon as I ordered that they were out, would I please wait till next shipment came in on April 1.st and it is NOT an Aprils fool joke. No I didn't want to wait so I ordered a 8GB in another webshop that I have already gotten shipment confirmation on. I'll get it tomorrow, but then I won't have any news to share with this helpful community, I am afraid.

 

And my unit is marked with both "Model name 81DE" and further down the hard-to-read label, "MTM81DE00GTMX"

 

Have an ice day all.

 

PS: I also upgradede to a PNY 480GB SSD and have read speeds at over 500MB/s and write speeds at 300 MB/s internally. I am SO happy with this machine ;=)
