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.

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.

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 ;=)
