    Is the RAM soldered for these Toshiba?


    Toshiba Satellite S55-C5138 (another question for this model is, is this 4k or just supports 4k external monitors)

    And this one:
    Robot Check

    And this: Look at this: The first 4K laptop, Toshiba's Satellite P55t, coming soon | PCWorld (p55t)

    Robot Check
    Generally the 11" and smaller will have soldered RAM and SSD, not much can be changed on them.

    If concerned about RAM I always use Crucial US | DRAM, Solid State Drive (SSD) & Memory Upgrades to check the capability of upgrading them as the advertisements seldom mention that additional information. My 12", 13", 14", 15" and 17" all have sockets that can use different size/capacity modules, most have 8GB but a 14" has 4GB and a 15" and a 17" have 6GB.

    Toshiba isn't listed in the list of Manufacturer on that Crucial site.

    No, it isn't. That's because Toshiba's PC business was spun off as Dynabook and is listed on Crucial as 'Dynabook-Toshiba' now.

    Just the 'Toshiba' part, all pre-Dynabook era models are now listed under 'Dynabook-Toshiba' on the Crucial site. For example, my Satellite L750 (System One in 'My Computers' below) is a 2011 model, but is listed as a Dynabook-Toshiba model by Crucial.

    It says "
    Maximum Memory: 16GB

    *Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory."

    Does this mean that even though the official maximum is 16GB, I could plug in 32GB and it could work?

    Nope. 16GB is the maximum total supported RAM.

    Crucial also doesn't offer any single 16GB (or larger) DIMMs for the laptop.

    To return to your original question, the link Robot Check claims that it supports UHD resolution (3840 X 2160). That's usually also called 4k. I haven't been able to determine whether it also supports HDCP 2.2 or later, required for playing some copy protected 4k material.

    I know that one is 4k but I'm wondering if this one is 4k as well: Toshiba Satellite S55-C5138
