Hi,

I'm planning to buy the T480 Laptop and i want to buy the RAM outside and upgrade. i would like to know how many Slots will be there by default in the T480 Laptop so that i can buy the RAM accordingly. I'm planning to buy with the 4gbDDR4 RAM and upgrade it to 32gb by purchasing 2 16gb Sticks. can i do that.

 

how can i get confirmed that the T480 comes with 2 slots or 1 SLOT for Ram.

Yes, the T480 does have two slots, actually is the last normal T series laptop to have 2 slots, the new T490 have only 1 slot and soldered RAM.

If bought this:

16GB x 2 DDR4 sticks, I'm just waiting for my T480 to arrive so I can perform the upgrade. Be careful when opening the laptop so that you don't break the clips that held the back cover in place.

Thank you so much.

I'll look at this and will buy it.

if you don't mind asking what Hard disk did you purchsed with. Did you upgraded it or using the one came from the purchse.

 

if it's OK can you please share those details as well.

 

Thanks,

Srini
