X1 Carbon Gen 1 Type 3443 - memory and SSD

Hello, looking for some help upgrading to 16Gb RAM and 256Gb SSD. Current (as shipped) details:

  • X1 Carbon serial #R9X132H
  • Product: 3443CTO
  • 180Gb Intel SSD FRU #45N8305
  • 8Gb RAM on a single SODIMM

If you can point me to a 16Gb part # for memory I would appreciate it. For the SSD if somebody can confirm SanDisk FRU #45N8299 will fit in the 1st Gen X1 Carbon that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Community

1. Unfortunately, the RAM upgrade is impossible. The quote from the laptop specification:
"4GB or 8GB / PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3L / soldered to systemboard, no sockets"

2. The SSD FRU 45N8299 you mention is compatible with x1c gen1

Do it well, worse becomes itself

There is an adpater card avail for the ssd so you can usa the samsung larger and affordable/better drive. Unfortunatly the ram is board level. You can find a better mobo however


And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
