RAM Upgrade for Lenovo Yoga 730-15IWL ( 81JS000FGE )

2018-12-03, 16:29 PM



I think about purchasing this notebook:


Yoga 730-15IWL ( 81JS000FGE ), Core i7-8565U, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3840x2160




In the specs it says, that is has 8GB RAM soldered to the board and one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket.

Can I simply purchase 16GB SO-DIMM RAM and put that into the laptop and will it then utilize 24 GB RAM?

Has anyone yet tried this and confirm that it works with 24GB RAM?


I know that in the specs it says 16 GB maximum RAM. But I think I've read somewhere that 24 GB would also be possible. Can anyone confirm this?


And what about the warranty? If I need to send in the laptop I would remove the extra 16 GB RAM and that's not a problem concerning warrenty?


Any hints are highly appreciated.

Regards, jimbo

I'm not 100% sure but "Ram soldered" usually means that the ram module is directly soldered onto the motherboard. So RAM would not be upgradable at all.

Hi jimbolaya1312,




As the specifications indicates: 

16GB max / 2400MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, 8GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket 


It was offered with a soldered 8GB on-board with one additional slot for placing another 8GB ram. Going beyond OEM recommended max ram is not certified but is possible that it may be able to support more similar to the claim of fellow member on this discussion.


Generally upgrades should not void the warranty and you just need to place back the original parts before sending. This may be different per location so it would be better calling tech support first about this in your country.


I hope this helps answer your query.
