Can 8GB of memory be place in Edge 11

Hello,

 

I have a new Thinkpad Edge 11 (0328-5EG) with Core i3-380UM, 4GB memory and 64bit windows 7 prof. The 320GB harddisk is changed with a 240GB Vertex SSD.

To mprove speed I wanted to know if it is possible to place 8GB of memory in the laptop. The i3 core should be able to handle this according to Intel (http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=50028). All the documentation of the Thinkpad edge states 4GB max. Is this a bios limitation of was it never tested with 8GB.

Has anyone placed 8GB of memory in it's Edge 11?

Hi and welcome to the forum!


I don't have EDge 11, but lenovo says 8GB should work fine in your ThinkPad:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-55644


Hope this helps.

It would be great if you can report back with the results here - I'd love to go up to 8gb if it works...

I have installed 6Gb in my Edge 11 with no problems, so I guess 8GB will also be fine.

Hi!

 

I am planning to buy edge 11. But the website specifies max of 4gb only for edge 11. I could not find that edge 11 can support 8gb. could you please help me with this?

Hi witzeln and welcome to the forum!

 

The time I posted the link it used to say 8GB for Edge 11...I can't say for sure 8GB will work but as you can see avboothroyd was able to successfully run 6GB so I suppose 8GB will be fine too. Don't take my word though, do as much research as possible.

What is the 7 character product number of your Edge? It looks like 2668-KHU and can be looked from the back sticker or System Toolbox.
