W500 8 Gb RAM.

2008-10-04, 13:55 PM

I own a W500/Vista64/4GB RAM   Great system! 

I would like to increase RAM to 8GB.  Anyone knows of a single 4 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1067MHz SODIMM module?

Hello,

 

I don´t think we´ll see 4GB sticks in the near future.

I would suggest google for it (when google doesn´t now it, nobody knows)  and watch the reviews carefully.

 

Kind regards

Andreas

I think we'll see 4gb sticks in the near future:

I suggest you google for it, before posting.

i shiver at the thought of the current market price for it. Apparently it costs around 400 to 500 Euro for one piece of this 4 gig stick.

This is the 8GB ram upgrade I put in my T400 this week - I also Upgraded from XP to Win Vista Ultimate 64Bit.  This laptop ROCKS!

 

If you can Swallow the grand that it costs, then go for it!

I thought XP and Vista could only use up to 3.5gigs?  i.e. the OS itself is limited from going above 4G, let alone 8G?

The address space limitation of 4GB is for 32bit OS's.  64bit OS's give you a *lot* more breathing room.
