Well, I havent received mine yet, it will be in 2-3 weeks time as they ran out of stock from last IT Show.

FYI, I did upgrade the OS to Win 7 Pro for additional $76.00.

I heard we cant upgrade the memory further as no more slot available?

I see .. but is there extra slot but it just technically almost impossible without breaking it apart - except those with the right tool?

Did you order online? I bought in IT Show but until now still no news.

I have it upgraded to Windows 7 Pro 64 bit though and they said might increase lead time by a week ..
