Hi,

Can I upgrade my Lenovo  YOGA 700-14ISK to 16GB RAM? (Now I have 8GB)

Can you recommend me which RAM should I buy?

You cannot upgrade the memory.  There are no slots; memory is chips soldered to the motherboard.

 

I read it too fast and answered for a 11" model.  You need DDR3L 1600.  You can replace your 8GB DIMM with a 16GB one.  Most brands work, but avoid those with the word "value" in them.  If you buy non-Lenovo memory, always confirm the seller's return policy.

Thanks for your response!

Do you know any other way I can increase my RAM? even if it's not will be as fast as RAM.

I have ubuntu 18 and Windows 10 as dual boot architecture.

Thanks

I realize you did ask this, but if your Y700 came with a hybrid hard disk drive then consider upgrading to a solid state drive. That too will improve performance.

You can upgrade the RAM, I have done it successfully using a Crucial CT204864BF160B 16GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM 1.36V CL11 module.

How is it performing? I guess you needed to buy a 16GB module because there is only one slot. Is that right?

 

Does the motherboard support more than 16GB? If so, I might get a 24 or 32 GB module.

No problems with this upgrade at all. From what I have read 16GB is the maximum the BIOS / board supports.
