I'm sorry, but you can't increase the Surface Pro's RAM. The chips are soldered directly to the motherboard. Check out step 14 of the Surface Pro teardown in order to see for yourself :)

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."

if you want to crack out a soldering iron and order some surface mount ram with the same pin configuration you can replace it.

It is not fault from manufacturer. It is design specific, You also cannot upgrade iPadPro. I prefer surface pro over iPadpro due to double amount of ram and storage within same price bracket. Please dont compare it with laptops. and buy laptop if you need future up gradations.

It is starting to be laptops as well. I just discovered that all of our HP EliteBook 1040s (G2, G3, G4) cannot have their RAM upgraded. It is soldered to the board.

It sure pays to thoroughly research BEFORE you part with your precious money. I've save $100's even $1000's for self and friends.

RAM, no. Storage (SSD), maybe.

HI! How we can do it?

You simply need to buy an SD card, and there is a slot right in the side of the tablet. Keep in mind that this is not RAM, it is storage, so it will not make your Surface Pro any faster.

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.

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!

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.

Hasanainalsaid, unfortunately, you wouldn't even be able to replace the chips, because the chipset is configured per device, meaning it will only recognize the manufacturer amount of RAM. You had a great idea, because you would think that, for an i86 board, a standard chipset would be used, but no, Microsoft didn't go that route until much later in the Surface/Surface Pro series.

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!

Surface Pro is already a SSD device, no need to use that.

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.
