Adding Memory

In the future you may want to install memory modules to expand the
functionality of your computer. You can increase memory up to 512 MB
(256 MB x 2), by installing optional memory modules. For selected models 128
MB of memory is pre-installed (128 MB x 1); for other models, 64 MB of
memory is pre-installed (64 MB x 1). You can add an expansion memory module
(64 MB, 128 MB, or 256 MB) in the memory module bay. Expansion memory
modules are available as options. For memory upgrades, use only PC100 (CL2)
SDRAM SO-DIMM (gold lead contacts).
