Lenovo S210 memory upgrade

I have not yet purchased the Lenovo S210 but am tempted, the only reservation being the 4GB memory that comes as standard. I know there's only one memory slot, so I wonder can the 4Gb memory chip be replaced with an 8GB chip if I want to upgrade? And if so does this improve performance or are other changes also required?

Re: Lenovo S210 memory upgrade

 

I think what SEAlaa means is that some configs were shown with 4GB and some with 8GB and that in order to upgrade the 4GB, you would need to remove that and replace it with the appropriate 8GB model rather than just adding another module because the system has a single SODIMM socket.

 

Depending on model of the S210, it appears some used , PC3L-12800 1600Mhz DDR3L and some may use PC3L-10600 DDR3L 1333 MHz.   For example, this model in UK ships with 4GB and uses the 1333 Mhz memory.

 

Please see page 27 of the hardware maintenance manual for the S210 / S215 family of products.   Both memory types are listed and it appears the max config would be 8 GB.

 

There is a good discussion on this on another forum here.  The recommendations there are to ensure you purchase DDR3L memory to ensure the low voltage compatibility vs standards DDR3 which may or may not work.

 

You would also need to run a 64bit version of the OS to make use of the larger memory.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Shiva !

 

Your S210 Touch can be upgraded to a maximum of 8GB of memory.  Since it only has one memory socket you will have to purchase an 8GB DDR3L memory module and swap it with the 2GB that is already installed.  In purchasing your memory please note the "L" as it means your system can only use the low voltage DDR3 modules.

 

Here is a link to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.  The manual explains how to replace the memory module for your reference.
