Woohoo! Just upgraded my main ThinkPad T450 from 16GB to 24GB. Another 16GB module arriving next week to take it to 32GB. The specs say it can only take 16GB (2x8GB), but there are reports online 32GB (2x16GB) works. So far so good! 🍾 Time to open a few more Chrome tabs! 🤣

One reason I prefer the ThinkPad TrackPoint over a trackpad is scrolling. Turns out not everyone knows you can hold the middle mouse button and use TrackPoint to smoothly & precisely scroll in 4 directions. Keeps hands on the keys too. ❤️ 💻
