Einleitung

A computer uses RAM for short term data storage. When you open a web browser or play a game, the computer temporarily stores the information for the program in RAM. Adding extra RAM can let you run more programs at a time or keep more tabs open in your browser before the computer starts running slowly.

The Lenovo YOGA 730-15IKB comes from the factory with RAM soldered to the motherboard. This soldered RAM cannot be upgraded or removed.

Luckily, the YOGA 730 also has a slot for adding extra RAM that is easily accessible. If you would like to add more RAM to your computer, follow this guide to locate the RAM upgrade slot.

When buying RAM, be aware that the slot can only fit SODIMM type RAM sticks.

Thank you so much for this guide! Do you have to do anything with the SSD? Some videos about this say you have to change it but don’t go into detail as to why.

I’m glad you found the guide helpful! You should be able to upgrade your RAM without needing to touch the SSD at all (and vice versa). Neither component should have an impact on the other. The videos probably mention the RAM and SSD together because its convenient to do both upgrades at once.
