Read on after the jump to learn more about this relatively straightforward process.
Forget about swapping out the CPU, the graphics chip or display. Choose the correct product line (ex: Think Pad T Series). Pick the specific model of your laptop (ex: Think Pad T450s). Click "find upgrade." The Advisor will then tell you what type of RAM your system takes and what type of SSDs it can handle.
Computer Memory: the Basics A computer’s Random Access Memory (RAM) is a computer’s short-term memory.
RAM is unrelated to the computer’s storage drive (often called a hard drive) where files are kept.
Physically speaking, a notebook RAM module is a rectangular computer chip; the black squares on it are the actual memory chips and the green circuit board holds and connects them together.
The gold pins on one edge insert into a dedicated slot on the computer’s main circuit board (the motherboard) and allow the computer to transfer information via electrical signals.
Installation of RAM is one of the easiest ways to speed up your computer; only hardware installation is needed, without any additional software.
