Intel based IdeaPad S12 BIOS

2010-03-11, 9:04 AM

Hi,

 

I saw there is a BIOS update for a VIA based S12, that enables 3Gb RAM support. Does the Intel based S12 theoretically support more than 2 Gb of RAM, and are there any plans for releasing the BIOS update for it?

 

Thanks

Hi and welcome...

Due Hardware wired in Intel Chipset Limitation there is no way to upgrade more than 2 GB memory...

So there will be NO BIOSUPDATE ever, with a feature that break the 2 GB frontier  ..

This page show an Intel IdeaPad S12 with 3Gb of RAM that can be bought directly from Lenovo.

 

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.details?current-catalog-id=12F0696583E04D86B9B79B0FEC01C087&current-category-id=8EE56652C33D4452A778393130C14F42

 

Do you have to buy specifically that model to get 3Gb of RAM or can you buy one with 2Gb and upgrade it? There is no model with 3Gb of ram available in Canada.

 

Thanks!

I think that's the ION, it has a different graphics chipset to the Intel version and a bigger hard drive
