Questions & Answers

03/08/2007 alex: is memory a 1gb stick, or is it 2x512mb? will installing more memory void the warranty? what is the keyboard like on this laptop?

Easycom: The memory is installed as a single 1GB stick which makes it easy to upgrade the laptop, also if we fit the memory it does not affect the warranty on the notebook.
