T480S compatible memory options

2020-12-11, 18:37 PM

Hi everyone.

We have T480S laptops at work with 8 gigs of ram soldered on the board. I want to upgrade some of these to 24. I can see on the board there is an open slot for one memory card so I need to purchase one 16 meg module. When I lookup compatible memory I'm a bit shocked at the price through encompass for one 16 meg dimm. $386! what?

I can purchase through crucial or another provide for a much cheaper price but worried about compatibility. Can any of you point me to a compatible dimm that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I assume crucial would be good. I'd hate to buy some memory and discover it's not compatible. Windows 8 in an enterprise running so many background processes 8 megs just doesn't cut it.

I'm personally fond of Crucial products, and they guarantee compatibility if you follow their recommendations.

Their links for 7th and 8th gen CPU models:

Most brands work fine.  Avoid any with the word "value" in the type.  There have been some compatibility issues.  I always suggest that people check a seller's return policy before buying any non-Lenovo RAM.  8GB, 16GB and 32GB DDR4 DIMMs will work

I agree. I like crucial as well. I'll have to give it a try and see.
