  theooo 11:13 03 Nov 2014

No answer from Tom's hardware forum. click here,

Is there anyone tried install over 16GB (the maximum memory) on Lenovo M91p? or installed 1 stick of 8GB memory on M91p work without any problem?


just try to ask for anyone with such experience. of course, it needs to take the risk for upgrading memory that do not state in specification. However, is it too risky for the upgrade?

i tried google about it, most of the memory vendor follow lenovo's spec. except one

Expensive doorstop if it goes wrong.

Why would you even want more than 16GB ram? and if you did then I would advise buying a motherboard that the manufacturer specifies can use/cope with it.

i need to test ESXI on M91p, upgrade the memory seems better than buying a new PC, i don't want to spend too much on testing machine.

Also, find the germany website stated it is upgradable. i do believe it is lenovo's marketing issue.

It would have been good to find someone who had actually done the upgrade, as it is you will have to decide whether to be that person.. or not ;)
