Surface Pro 2 RAM Upgrade

Can you upgrade the system memory or RAM in a Surface Pro 2 (2013)?

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 Pro 2 has, the more tasks it can handle simultaneously, resulting in more responsive and faster performance.

Unfortunately, the memory on Surface Pro 2 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 Pro 2 supports up to 8GB of 1600 MHz LPDDR3 memory. Here are the memory configurations on Surface Pro 2.


I have gathered the latest price updates and exciting deals for the most popular laptops with DDR4 and DDR5 RAM on Amazon to help you find the best value for your money.
