    I install 2 512 Kingston PC2700 in a M6809 without any problems. I purchased the chips at Best Buy for $49 (This week only).

    Installed Kingston 1GB PC2700 RAM into the user accessible slot as it was suggested by some folks here that Kingston works fine. I bought it at fry's outpost:

    No problem, everything works smooth. Ran test benchmark SiSoftware Utilities to see if there are any problems - everything seems perfect. Photoshop grabs about 380MB, Dreamweaver, Visual Studio - all memory hungry softwares run nice without swapping now even when you run several at the same time! Games like Half Life 2 run faster without swapping. I love it. :)

    Now, the only thing left for the ultimate paradise is either Hitachi 7K100 7200rpm 100GB hard drive or Seagate Momentus 7200rpm 120GB. Neither is still in the market though. There are smaller versions of Hitachi - 60GB and 80GB - they have recently hit the market.

    I have an M6807 with Windows XP/SP2 (bios updated a couple of months ago)...just found this deal on 1G RAM at Tigerdirect.com...Any idea if this is compatible?

    I am also thinking about upgrading my current processor Athlon 64 Mobile 3000+ with the Athlon 64 Mobile 3700+ (62W, not the DTR). Any feedback?

    Anyone upgrade their internal speakers?

    It's kind of off subject but is the m6000 customizeable because i can't find it on the site.

    Upgrading all RAM...

    I have a M6809 and want to max-out the RAM. I can easily replace the user-accessible strip with a 1GB SODIMM, but I want to replace the motherboard SODIMM as well.

    What is the procedure for removing the keyboard?

    I assume that 2gb of RAM is the max that this system will address, correct?

    I found the info:

    I've seen mixed results with the M6805 with PC3200. My question is, does it really work? I'm thinking of upgrading both slots with a 1X1 GB Module each, but I want to know if I should stick with PC2700, or if at all possible, am I able to go with PC3200?

    Thanks.
