8 GB memory for a w520

2012-09-25, 18:48 PM

Was hoping someone could help me out:

I want to upgrade the memory in my W520 4282-ad5

 

I want to put two 8GB dimms in it.

 

Can someone tell me the part number of the item that I need?  i tried to find it on Lenovo's site, but wasn't successful.

 

Thanks

 

Jon

'afternoon.

welcome to the forum!

 

here's a Lenovo part that would work:

http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?GroupID=460&Code=0A65724

but it's $189.99 for one stick !!?!

 

any quality brand DDR3-1333/1600 PC3-10600/12800 204-pin memory should work fine. i recently put a Crucial 16gb kit (2 x 8gb) into my X220 and it runs very well. This one, actually: http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT2KIT102464BF1339 but sourced through Newegg. other members report good luck with other brands, too.

 

hth.

 

edit: spelling.

Thanks for the quick reply. that's pretty steep for one stick of memory. I'll check the crucial parts.
Thanks!
