Surface Book 2 13.5” RAM Upgrade

Question:
Can you upgrade the system memory or RAM in a Surface Book 2 13.5” (2017)?
Answer:

System Memory or Random Access Memory (RAM) is a temporary memory used by the central processing unit (CPU) to store information that the operating system (OS) and software applications actively use for faster reading and writing. When a system doesn't have enough RAM or memory, it will use a slower SSD or traditional hard disk drive that makes the system run slower. So the more RAM your Surface Book 2 13.5” has, the more tasks it can handle simultaneously, resulting in more responsive and faster performance.

Unfortunately, the memory on Surface Book 2 13.5” is soldered to the motherboard, and there is no additional RAM slot for expansion. Since you can't change or add more RAM after you buy, you want to make sure you pick the configuration with the right amount of memory at the initial purchase. Microsoft claims that the Surface Book 2 13.5” supports up to 16GB of 1866 MHz LPDDR3 memory. Here are the memory configurations on Surface Book 2 13.5”.
