    I am thinking about buying a Thinkpad P1. I plan to order a 32GB memory from Lenovo and buy/install another 32GB myself (P1 has only two memory slots, right?).

    However, I searched crucial.com and kingstons.com and many other places and I am unable to find 32GB (1x32GB) memory for P1.

    Thanks for any comment and pointer!

    Probably not available in the mass market yet, since these are niche memory chips and expensive too.

    A month late but this is the necessary ram part: M471A4G43MB1-CTD
    It’s not a niche market, it’s just expensive. Neobits sells them for 320$ with tax and shipping. Best of luck to you.

    Btw: as of this post, it’s the only 32gb sodimm ram chip in production
