I want to find out about some possibilities to upgrade RAM and Hard Drive. I did a little of research on internet and:

1- Sony allow only up to 384MB (128 installed plus up to 256MB removable) of Ram where specification for motherboard stayed 512MB. I know some people did upgrade to 640MB (128 plus 512) and they claim is working...

2-What is the maximum allowable HDD for this system. Is there any limit how big HDD I can install?

Thank's for help.
