Lenovo IdeaPad S10 When it comes to adding RAM, this netbook is incredibly easy to upgrade. All you need is a DDR2 PC5300 SODIMM in 512MB, 1GB, or 2GB capacity, a mini philip's head screwdriver, and five minutes of spare time. Before you go buying a new SODIMM, you should be aware that the first 512MB of memory are soldered onto the motherboard and there is only one DIMM slot. If your netbook comes with more than 512MB preinstalled, chances are that there's already a DIMM sitting in the slot and you will have to remove it if you choose to upgrade.
