    Hi,
    I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade the memory of my R830 up to 2x8GB. The US technical specification of the R830-S8330 (see the link) seem to be exactly the same as my R830.

    Thanks for your answers

    Philippe

    I guess if both models have exactly the same Chipset variation and CPU, then you can use 8GB Modules. But I would test it first before purchasing the RAM if possible. There may be something else limiting the RAM to 4GB Modules.

    According notebook specification your Portege can be upgraded up to 8 GB and not more than that.
    Upgrade up to 16 GB is not possible.

    as above, the official line is 8Gb max

    however i have heard of certain Lenovo units taking 16Gb even though officially they only support 8Gb

    if you can borrow someones memory to test then your onto a winner!
