Why is the Yoga only upgradable to 8GB?

2013-01-13, 2:48 AM

Why can I not put 16GB of ram in it?

for most ultrabooks the max ram is either 4 or 8 GB. Many others (e.g. Samsung series 9, ASUS Zebbook prime) only allow 4GB max.

I'm not sure if you were asking for technical reasons, but there is only one SODIMM slot, and as far as I know there are not any 16GB modules available yet...

Shorlty after posting this I realized there was only one port, and then quickly leared that no 16GB existed.

If one was created then in theory the yoga could be upgraded to 16GB then?

as noted above.  The Yoga does not have onboard memory, it uses a single memory slot.  Lenovo would either need to add a second memory slot or put at least the first 4/8gb on board (soldered) leaving the slot empty.
