Official line appears to be that it only supports 1 GB, but there are articles on the web indicating that a 4 GB stick will work.

C-50 is 64-bit and
supports hardware virtualization (though you'd need to be a masochist to run VMs on an underpowered machine like this).

It isn't for me, it is for my daughter to have something she can tote around to class when she starts college next month. It is going to be a light duty machine (e-mail, word processing and web), so I see no need to spend the $ on an SSD.
We might swap out the stock OS for Ubuntu Linux (she's actually been running Linux on her desktop for a few months)...
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
