I had a converstation with a local rep at a Lenovo dealer, and he told me that its technically supported with 8GB of RAM on the X300 if you use Vista x64 (which I already am). However he couldnt provide any reference or example of someone who actually did this.
My X300 is my work horse for development in VS2008, and any additional RAM would be welcomed dearly
Does anyone have any experience in this?

The other problem will be the price: a 4GB 200pin DDR2 RAM cost about $400 a pop (so $800 for 8GB...)
Kingston has some : Mfg part: KTD-INSP6000B/4G

In Australia the 4 gig module can be bought for 140 USD each in stores for a G.Skill one, Kingston costs like 190 USD. I mean if someone has use for 8 gig of ram, then obviously it is a worthwhile investment.
What is really expensive is the 4 gig module of DDR3 ram.
