Re: Ideapad 330 15ikb 81de00vtak ssd and ram upgrade

Hi McDanish,

 

Greetings.

 

Your systemboard PN 5B20R19914 (MB L 81DE I58250U UMA D4G WIN) do have 4GB ram soldered on it and I am sure that adding 8GB to max to 12GB would still make it way productive as an upgrade plus the fact that you are now enjoying your SSD speed.

 

Have the best luck in all your endeavors.

 

Regards

Re: Ideapad 330 15ikb 81de00vtak ssd and ram upgrade

Thanks, I am re-venturing into Photoshop territory again after a break since my desktop computer started acting up 2 months ago, but this little beast has a new 8250 chip that is almost as powerful as the I5 650 that was in the desktop. That combined with a partition on the superfast SSD and the extra 4 GB RAM should make it possible to enjoy Photoshop again. I started on the last Danish version in 1997-98. THAT was a while back and I still only master maybe 10% here in CS5.5 because they keep adding features and 3rd parties develop filter. I try to keep up even if I am closing in on 60 years ;=)

Re: Ideapad 330 15ikb 81de00vtak ssd and ram upgrade

This little semi-cheap (640 US Dollars) laptop has turned out to be quite a beast. Photoshop opens in 6 seconds, it boots in 10 seconds and I just ran SuperPi, it calculates Pi with a million decimals in 11 seconds!!!! My recently retired 7 year old desktop also had a  Core I5 clocked at 3.2 GHz, 8GB RAM, and it took 31 seconds!!!I am SUCH a happy camper. I should have tested it before I upgraded from 8 to 12 GB RAM but I couldn't get Super PI 1.9 WP to run so I found the version that I tested my desktop with so many years ago. Laptop life is good ;=) Have a nice day all of you out there.

Hi blackrosedragon,

 

Greetings.

 

If not the OEM recommended parts, then stick close to the specifications.

It is not brand specific.

 

Regards
