ideapad 320 - 15IKB RAM upgrade and M.2 slot?

Hi guys,

 

After browsing this forum for a bit, i found out that there are a couple of variants for this ideapad out there and I was wondering where mine fits in.

I especially am looking to upgrade my RAM (from 8 to 16 GB) and if possible install a SSD on the board (M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 slots?)

MTM :  80XL02NVMB

System board : MBL80XL241I57200UHUMAD4GWIN

 

So first question is: RAM, do i have the version with the soldered 4GB thus limiting me to max 12 GB? Or 2 4GB cards that i can swap for 2 8GB ones?

Second, does my sytem board have slots to add a SSD to it?

 

Thanks in advance

Yep, the ideapad 320-15IKB has 4GB soldered on. It seems like it means that the user removable memory stick has a max of 16GB, totalling the system to a maximum memory of 20GB. Crucial seems to agree here too

Some models of the ideapad 15 don't have an M.2 slot, but after checking, it looks like your model does have it:

But it seems like it has the M.2 2242 form factor (meaning it's smaller than your traditional 2280 M.2 SSD).

And here's a pic of an SSD I got from the parts list for your model:

Hope that helps!
