Memory upgrade Thinkpad Yoga 11e Windows 8.1

The current configuration of my system (as bought) is 4Gb RAM.  According to the specifictions, it is upgradable to 8Gb.  I had a conversation with Sales Support via Chat trying to find the correct part number for 8Gb memory to replace the 4Gb.  I was told that as my system is still under warranty, I would need to contact Technical Support for this to happen.  Having done a number of searches on this forum, would I be right in suspecting that the existing 4Gb is soldered in to place - hence the need for a Warranty call to upgrade.  I was advised that any attempt to make the change myself would void the warranty.

Any thoughts please.

This seems to say there's one stick of socketed RAM.

The bottom cover and the memory module are both marked as "optional-service CRU", so you won't really void warranty by replacing it yourself.

The required RAM specification is this: PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600MHz SODIMM. Just find an 8GB stick with those specs.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U

Many thanks for your help.  I have not purchased this item from Lenovo, due to the pricing!  When converted into AUD it's a bit on the high side for me at the moment.  I will however try and find another, local supplier.

Thanks again

If you haven't bought one yet, you should see if refurbished models are available directly from Lenovo. I just bought one from the Lenovo refurb online store for a very good price. I'm in the US. It came with Windows 8.1 but, after running all the updates, I was able to install Windows 10. So far I'm pleased.

But how do you replace this RAM? I bought the correct RAM but the picture here on Lenovo is incomplete and there is a link to see the bottom cover and of course as is usual here, the link does not work. Tech support is useless and knows less than I do. Do I really have to take this to a repair shop to replace RAM that is a simple matter on any other laptop I've ever seen?
