    Would it be possible to post a few pics of the location of memory in this laptop along with a few tips how to remove it. I uderstand it's rather tight and I have big hands :)

    I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one not willing to pay the price they ask for the extra memory.

    One thing to note when opening the memory cover is sometime Gateway might put loctite on those screws. This loctite makes them hard to unscrew, so use the correct size screwdriver and carefully unscrew, otherwise you might round the phillips screw pattern.

    I know this because I upgraded my memory a few days ago.

    I just realized I should have just foregone the 2GB RAM upgrade because that could be done later. Oops. I really wish I did that and got the T7300 instead of the T7100.

    Dont kick yourself in the pants about it june... The one your getting is still as good or better than alot of 1+ year(s) old desktops. Expecially all the people who just go buy like the basic model at a store, not knowing anything about the performance.

    unless your order is in production why don't you just change it. The 2GB ram upgrade through them is definitely not worth it, but the T7100 should be enough for you unless you are doing CPU intensive tasks. (total commander, encoding, or synthetic benchmarking)

    I have the 7100 and am very happy with it, and it came with 1 gig, and I upgraded it to 2 gig. Very easy and screws came off easily. A buddy of mine sold it to me NIB for $800 which I could not turn down. :)
