    RAM Q: Is the RAM in the BBY Lenovo yoga 720 upgradeable? I know that the mentioned 8GB is on-board (hence it's not), but is there an empty RAM slot for more RAM? A slightly different Lenovo 720 model allows the 8GB model to go to 16GB... per there site   (4 Answers)

      Answer

      There is 8GB soldered to the motherboard which is not user upgradable. But there is 1 empty slot that is hidden under rectangular metal lid that you can use it to install another 8GB (MAX 16GB), but you have to pick one with 2133MHz speed and this is SODIMM 260pin module.

      Is the BIOS locked down to stop Linux instal like the Lenovo Yoga 710 2-in1 Signature Edition? Is the SSD locked in a proprietary RAID-0 mode that Linux doesn't support? Can BIOS be set to AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) mode for the SSD?   (3 Answers)

        Answer

        Thanks for the reply guys. I purchased this laptop last week (16Gig 4k-UHD GTX1050 model $1249.99) and changed the SSD to AHCI and did a clean install of Win-10 1703 with no problems. Lenovo makes it easy to download all the drivers you need for a clean install. I also added a 100MB partition and installed Fedora-25 with no problems. The WIFI card worked perfectly with Fedora-25! I am extremely impressed with this laptop and very happy with my purchased. I highly recommend it. Also, the display is a true 4K-UHD display and not a cheep PenTile display like the ASUS 2-1 and some other low cost gaming laptops like Samsung, HP and Dells. One note, the laptop had a dead pixel and the workers at Best-Buy replaced it no questions asked. Kudos to Best-Buy for having a consumer friendly return/exchange policy.

            Answer

            Not with this model, Since it does not have nvidia GTX graphics card, it would not need to cool so hard with full spin of fans. There could be a loud fan with model comes with nvidia card, and which is normal in that case.

            I am confused, is the Thunderbolt port connected to 2 PCI lanes or 4 PCI lanes for this non-dgpu model? Jared's question had the response "The Thunderbolt 3 USB-c port has data transfer rates of 40Gbps." which is the speed for full bandwidth - 4 lanes.   (1 Answer)
