Consensus was that the T400 won't take 16GB ram as the chipset won't allow for anything more than 8GB (which Lenovo states is already unachievable).

The PC3 part is different, but the it is the same PC3 that crucial says is compatible. I read the other thread as well, even before I posted this.
The answer is still the same as the other thread. No way possible it will ever work no matter where it is bought from. If you have plenty of disposable income or are wealthy, then by all means, try it and report back your findings.alsohere wrote:I read the other thread as well, even before I posted this.
Also, Crucial does NOT say that it is compatible: http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts. ... es&Cat=RAM

Unless the user in question has managed to swap in a quad-core CPU in their T400, they are unlikely to be telling the truth.whizkid wrote:A use on the Y Combinator forums claims to have 16GB in his T400. Anyone here tried it lately?
