Maximum Ram support in each slot of Thinkpad Edge E430 3254-D7Q

Hi,

I've purchased a Thinkpad Edge E430 3254-D7Q , that comes with Intel 2nd Gen Core i5 processor, 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD, 14inch Display. I just want to know what ts the maximum amount of ram supported by each channel of the laptop. I want to install a additional single stick 8GB ram into it. Is it possible?

But when i talked to the support center over phone, they told me that each slot supports upto 4 gb only. I'm confused.

4 gigs per slot was the maximum they tested for these machines at the time of release. But the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPU supports 8 gigs of ram per slot, as per Intel specification.

I have installed 16 gigs of ram in couple of people's E420 and E520/E530.
