Want to upgrade E495 thinkpad, 15.6" but unsure of effect on warranty.

2019-10-30, 23:40 PM

I just purchased the e495 thinkpad with ryzen 5 and 8gb ram. I want to add another 8 of the same type (samsung 2400 i think) and also am interested in other ways to increase performance. I purchased the laptop second hand but it has not really been used at all before i got it. Still has 6 months on warranty and i dont want to void it by opening it to add ram or change the hard drive. The usbc charging port seems a little loose so I was planning on having it looked at by a covered technician under the warranty. 


-Thank you for any help

Welcome to the forums per page 50 of manual memory is a optional service cru.  So you can replace memory without affecting warranty.  Obviously any damage you cause wont be covered.
