Is it possible to upgrade the memory for the 13-ae021tu from 8GB to 16GB?

Sorry but you would need to replace the system board to upgrade the memory.


Your manual here.

As @REO51ST says, your proposed memory upgrade requires a new system board. As is common on these very slimline machines, the memory is soldered to the system board, not socketed, so no upgrade is possible other than a totally uneconomic replacement system board.


This is not an issue unique to HP. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon has soldered memory, for example.
