I want to upgrade my t430 Laptop to 16/32 GB RAM. When I purchased this laptop, Lenovo store told me that this laptop has only one open RAM slot and he added 8 GB RAM and told me that we can not upgrade this laptop to 16/32 GB RAM. But I have a doubt because in the laptop specification it is clearly written that this laptop can be upgraded to 16/32 GB RAM...Can somebody provide me clarity about it.

You can definitely upgrade to 2x 8GB = 16GB total.
I don't know about 32GB. I seem to recall reading that either the chipset or motherboard don't allow it. In any case I don't think 16GB SODIMMs are available.

So what is the final Verdict ?
The jury is still out.
There are at least two issues currently being deliberated by the jury that preclude a final verdict
1. Even if the chip architecture supports 32GB the motherboard in the T430 may not.
2. Even if the chipset and mobo support 32GB you can't buy 16GB SODIMM modules.
Why do you feel you need more than 16GB?
