Maximum RAM on E440 and E540 Thinkpad laptops

Hi,

I am shopping for a new laptop and am looking at the E440, E540, T440, and T440s. I would like to know the maximum RAM that can be installed in the E440 and E540. I can't find this information anywhere.

 

Also, this is called the "E Series" on the website, but here it says "Edge". I assume this is the same thing?  I also went to Crucial.com to look at memory and see how much the maximum was, but they do not show the E Series, only the Edge.

 

Thanks,

Kkb

Hi,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

The maximum memory that can be installed in a Lenovo ThinkPad E440 and E540 is 16GB.

The E stands for Edge series.

 

Best regards,

Mithun.

It has 2 slots available for RAM so you can add another chip.

I ordered 2x8GB 12800 DDR3L (low voltage) and it maxed it out so now it doesn't even allow me to use an SD Card for ReadyBoost or the 16GB SSD I added in the M.2 slot - says both won't improve performance so I'll install CENTOS on the SSD or the SD and the other will simply be extra.
