Can I upgrade Z480 ram to 16 GB?

Hi lenovo staff,

 

I saw a thread in thinkpad subforum that one of the user there saying although according on the lenovo's tech spec, the max ram is 8 GB, but in practice, it can use more than 8 GB ram.

 

So I wonder if I can do same thing with my IdeaPad Z480. Is it possible to upgrade Z480's ram to 16 GB?

This is one of the most misunderstood things for the average computer user. More ram does not always mean faster, more GHz does not always mean faster.

Unless you are using heavy resource hogging programs like video rendering and CAD, you do not need more than 8gb of ram. 8gb of ram is good enough for those programs too.

I heard you can upgrade the firmware in lenovo service center to allow max 16 GB ram limit, is that true?
