Can I increase Surface PRO RAM
In Surface Pro, is it possible to upgrade the RAM? Say I want upgrade 4 GB to 8 GB RAM. Is it possible? If yes, what is the maximum limit?
Thanks & Regards,
John is right — the SSD is replaceable, but opening the Surface Pro is terrible.
Here is a shot of the actual SSD found in the Surface Pro:
From the teardown: "The Micron RealSSD C400 packs 64 GB of storage capacity. It can read 500MB/s and write 95 MB/s — all in a tiny 1.8" form factor."
I upgraded my ram and resolder the ram back in the exact way it came out and went from 8gig to 16gig in the i7 surface pro 6 do YESS IT IS DOABLE!! Just take your time and pay attention to what you are doing and don’t Solder the wrong thing or buy buy motherboard! So the answer to your question is YES IT IS POSSIBLE!
RAM, no. Storage (SSD), maybe.
SSD - yes, can replace it up to at least 256GB
It is soldered onto the board and the thickness or cost is actually secondary. The design specification of Modern Standby actually mandates soldered RAM for security concerns.
Sadly, as stated above, there is no way to upgrade RAM unless you crack the Surface Pro open and desauter the old RAM and replace it with a new one with the same connection points.
Since ReadyBoost caches your RAM to a NAND device, you're not going to need or want to use a USB drive. The storage on the Surface Pro is implemented with a 6Gb/s SSD already, meaning that if ReadyBoost is enabled, you can simply use the main storage device for caching.
If you are having space issues on your storage device, I would recommend a 256GB SD card. You can move some of the data from your SSD drive to the SD card, and then use the SSD for faster caching with ReadyBoost.
A regular consumer does not have the engineering or technician skills to do micro-soldering. For regular consumers soldering RAM onto a computer motherboard is risky, because they can damage the device, it voids the warranty.
"Modern Standy" as you call it is a flawed design design. It is really just part of planned obsolescence, which is a DESIGN FLAW. It screws consumers. What kind of consumer-ignorant profit-hungry @%^$$@$ product manager would make that product design? Consumers have to boycott such product manufacturers. It creates more eWaste, and !#^&@! off consumers.
It cracks me up to hear "NO, it can NOT be replaced because it is S-O-L-D-E-R-E-D to the board!!!"... as if that's some nightmare scenario.

No one gave birth to a motherboard that came out with every component already attached. It had to first be soldered on, which means it can also be DE-soldered, which in turn means it can then be RE-soldered! While YOU may not be able to solder/de-solder components, that doesn't mean it's an impossibility for everyone. I've been fixing devices for friends/family, creating electronic projects, and doodling with various PCB's for a couple of years now and I could easily replace the "impossible to replace" RAM, all while possessing only a "self-taught, hands-on" education in electronics.
Bottom line: If a component is soldered to a pcb, then it can be replaced.
What about trying ReadyBoost with a USB? Access may not be as fast as DDR, buts it is better than a cracked screen from trying to open the Surface up!
what if you know how to solder it on and you mod the UEFI
