Upgrading ThinkPad E420s, Choosing Memory and Solid State Drive

2014-08-12, 21:10 PM

Hi All,

 

I want to update my ThinkPad E420s. Now I have 4 GB of memroy  and 320 hard drive. I want to get 8 GB memory and a solid stated drive.

 

I want to verify that I have chosen components that will work with the laptop.

Will the memory and the SSD below work with E420s?

 

Memory:  http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-PC3-10600-204-Pin-Notebook-CT2KIT51264BF1339/dp/B0067G1N34/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1407875572&sr=1-1&keywords=ddr3+pc3-10600+1333mhz

 

SSD: http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-240GB-2-5-Inch-Internal-CT240M500SSD1/dp/B00BQ8RM1A/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1407874917&sr=1-1&keywords=7mm+ssd

 

I used this article as a spec guide http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/pd015793

Specifications for memory:

  • 8GB max7 / PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3
  • Non-parity
  • Dual-channel capable
  • Two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

Specifications for SSD:

  • Solid State Drive (SSD) / SATA 3.0Gb/s
  • 128GB SSD, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
  • 80GB, mSATA

Thank you!

Solved! See the solution

Hi Mihalych,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per the query we understood that you are looking for Upgradation of Memory and SSD for ThinkPad E420s.

 

We gone through the link of the parts detail and in that only memory part is having exact configuration and you can go ahead with purchasing the Memory, but the SSD drive is not matching with Crucial 240 Gb SSD, hence I suggest you to get it verifyed with our authorized service center before purchasing the SSD drive, has the system will support only upto 128Gb SSD drive.

 

And for further details on memory you can click the below link.

ThinkPad E420s

 

Hope this helps!

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar
