RAM upgrade on w500

I have a w500 ThinkPad (product id = 4058CTO) and according to the ThinkVantage system information I have 4gb ram with "0 remaining DIMM slots").  Does this mean I can only upgrade to 8gb by buying two 4gb ram sticks (i.e. there are no 6gb sticks)?

Re: RAM upgrade on w500

true.  The sticks are all "powers of 2", ie 256 mg, 512mb, 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, etc.

I do not respond to requests for private, one-on-one help. Your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where they may help others as well.

I am not an employee or agent of Lenovo.
