Thinkpad T460 RAM Upgrade

Is there an extra empty slot to add RAM to the Lenovo T460 Thinkpad (Intel Core i5 6200 CPU @ 2.30Ghz)?  What's the maximum RAM I can add up to (currently 16GB RAM on 1TB HDD)?  Do I just slot in the RAM and will be able to use immediately?

 

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Welcome to the Community

T460' specification
http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T460/ThinkPad_T460_Platform_Specificatio...

A quote:
"32GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two DDR3L SO-DIMM sockets"

Your laptop, most likely, has 2 x 8 GB SO-DIMMs in both sockets.

Thanks, besides changing the RAM, can I plug in an external hard disk for quick upgrade of RAM?

It's not the best idea. Use, at least, SSD. But unfortunately, m.2 slot in this laptop doesn't support SSD.

So, you've to upgrade the memory sticks or/and replace the HDD with SSD if you need more memory, physical or virtual.
