Hi A_Comarniceanu,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Would you have the MTM included to specify details on the model.

The link will not show the details and may ask to sign in first on my end.

 

Product specification:

 

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

 

Some: SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s

 

There are variants of Ideapad 520, some would have motherboards with just SATA III as other would have M.2 PCIE slot along with the SATA.

 

Update us soon as convenient.

 

Regards

Hi there

 

I have this laptop (8gb RAM/2TB HDD) and I have successfully removed and instrall a 1TB Samsung 850 EVO SSD. It certainly made a difference to how quick it is.

 

I too am looking at RAM upgrades as I need about 16GB for some GoPro video editing and would love to know the MAX RAM. I understand that the laptop has 4GB soldered to the board, but if i add a 16GB dimm do i jump to 20GB ram or does it have some sort of issue and maxes out at 16GB?

Yes, you can add 16 gb of RAM in 2nd slot making totsk of 4+16=20gb. I have done it and my laptop is working fine with 20gb RAM.

 

BTW planning to remove 1TB Hdd and replace it with 1TB sata Ssd.. Hope it supports that too..
