The memory on the Booklet is soldered to the motherboard, so it is not possible to replace the memory with higher capacity chips. The best way to benefit from additional memory is to use ReadyBoost to store your Windows 7 pagefile, which definitely increases performance and reduces slow swapping on the hard drive. Hope this helps! - Miles.

I agree, using a 4 GB SDHC card made it perform much faster.
But would it be even faster if I bought a 8 or 16 GB SDHC card for Ready Boost alone files ??
Also must agree that Google Chrome is much faster on the Booklet that IE explorer.....
i used a 16gb class 10 and it did make a difference, then i swapped out my HDD for a SSD and that was even better. So much better in fact, that if you try to use ready boost, it simply states that you cannot use it as it will not make the device any faster.
the upgrade to the SSD was well worth the investment.
I added a 4GB SD card and use this for boot up which makes it very fast - still cannot find any drivers for the 3G though and reduced to using external dongle until I can sell the machine via EBay and buy something thats works !
How about internet (firefox or chrome) and other RAM-eating applications?
SDcard reader wont help a lot if there is only 1GB of ram.
I ment... that ReadyBoost is via SDCard reader which is probably connected to the same port as USB, so we have like 480 Mbit/s --> (60 MB/s). Fast SDcards can reach even 90MB/s but we have bottleneck in USB 2.0. Mentioning that typical ram capacity is counted in Gbits/s (excample 1 Gbit is equal to 125 megabytes). So it will speed up but it will be rather slow
I have heard that even hard drive upgrade (to the SSD drive) cuts whole warranty :/
Is there no any option to upgrade (like in nokia service) without losing the warranty?
Someone please tellme if it really plays HD videos (without cuts and jups on the creen). And how real work looks like. Well I am not typical 'web surving' user. Rather programing, databases (but as a projectant not a user) so software would eat like 1GB of ram without system so i wonder if I get an heart attack with working on it or no
For 720p, ...Things You Will Need
CoreAVC codec You can download a 30-Day trial version here, or purchase it for 8 dollars.
Media Player Classic: Home Cinema Edition (the home cinema edition adds the feature to remove tearing issues with VGA output)
Combined Community Codec Pack (For all other movie formats)
Step 1 Install CoreAVC codec and AC3 Filter (optionally the combined community codec pack). Extract mplayerc.exe from the Media Player Classic: Home Cinema Edition.
Step 2 Start > Programs > CoreCodec > Configure CoreAVC
Step 3 Deblocking - Select Skip Always
Step 4 Check Preferred Decoder, click OK.
Step 5 Start > Programs > AC3Filter > AC3Filter Config
Step 6 Output Format > Select either 2/0 Stereo or Dolby ProLogic II depending on your stereo config. (The soundcard can't do dolby digital, you would need to buy an external soundcard for that) Click OK.
Step 7 Launch mplayerc.exe
Step 8 View > Options > External Filters > Add Filter... Select CoreAVC Video Decoder and click OK. Now select it in the list of External Filters and make sure that "Prefer" is selected.
Step 9 Playback > Output Select VMR9 (renderless) ** and make sure Direct3D Fullscreen (remove tearing) is selected. Click OK.
With this setup, it is possible to connect to an LCD TV with a resolution of 1900x1080 and play 720p movies with no skipping.
Tips & Warnings
Note that because we are using Direct3D to render the display to stop tearing, we lose any context menus when playing a video, so you have to learn to use the keyboard to navigate through a movie. Ctrl+C closes the movie file
so you can get back to the menus. One option in particular that helps is View > Options Miscellaneous > Remember File position so I don't have to navigate through movies so often.
Also, you may want to turn off subtitles, Start > Programs Combined Community Codec Pack > Filters > VSFilter Configuration > General > Loading > Do not load > OK.
