Omen 17-w102na Ram Upgrade

HP Recommended
Omen 17-w102na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm thinking of buying the Omen 17-w102na but it only has 8gb of ram, I'm wondering if I'd be able to upgrade it to 16gb at some point?

Hi gaz

 

Good question.

 

Most newer systems support at least 16Gb of memory. Many support 32GB or 64GB.

 

Please see this HP Support doc showing system specs. I could not find an HP Support document on memory upgrades or motherboard specs.

 

Contact HP Support on this unless someone else in the forum has better information.

 

Grzy

I replied in a different thread about this:

I can tell you that 32GB works fine in my omen-17-w200na.  I cannot see an issue between 32GB functioning in your Skylake motherboard vs the Kaby Lake one I have as the Intel specifications allow for this.  Certainly you will have no issue with 16GB.

 

Although the OFFICIAL line is max 16GB, I would be VERY surprised if you could not go further.
