RAM specifications for Thinkpad X121e 3045?

2021-02-11, 10:37 AM

Hello

 

I own a Thinkpad X121e 3045. I consider to upgrade RAM. I downloaded the manual but it lacks of detailed information on this.

 

What are the exact technical specifications of RAM that I can insert into the laptop? What type of RAM (DDR 2/3/4/5), LPDDR? Which frequencies? How many banks? And so on.

Thanks so far.

 

There is written a Max RAM of 8GB. I already bought the laptop with 8GB and want to go higher now.

 

I went to Intel and found out that the CPU can handle up to 16GB.

 

Is the Max of 8GB the Max Lenovo sold the device with or is it really a technical limitation?

Let me rephrase my question more clearly and specific:

 

Will 16GB of RAM will work in the Thinkpad x121e laptop?

Hello,

 

I have an earlier ThinkPad X120e with the AMD E-350 CPU and was able to upgrade it to 16GB of RAM.  An album showing the installed RAM and a couple of screenshots can be found at https://imgur.com/a/Y5xrC.

 

Keep in mind, though, that this is an unsupported memory configuration, so it may or or may not work with the X121e Type 3045.

 

Regards,
