And the Lenovo with the 2630QM runs 32GB:
And as mentioned these guys http://www.powernotebooks.com/ASUS-C...ks-cat-65.html will outfit the G74 with 32GB (even the ones running with the 2670, which has identical specs according to ark.intel to the 2630, except 200 MHz more...).
BTW, until just a few weeks ago that same ark.intel page on the 2630 claimed that the max memory compatible with the 2630 was 8GB! Check out
so I'm not sure if ark.intel is trustworthy.
I think if it doesn't work it'll be a G74 BIOS issue, and not any crippling of the 2630's memory controller by Intel (I've never even heard that they do that!).
So, we'll see when I get around to this. Looking like a weekend thing.
