I'm thinking about buying an HP Pavilion G7-1255sa and already considering upgrades.
The model I'm looking at ships with 4GB of RAM as 1x4GB.
Obvious choice is to throw another 4GB into the one spare slot, right?
But the spec says max supported RAM 6GB. Why?
Elsewhere on the HP site it says that anything running Windows 7 64bit supports up to 16GB, and Intel says the i52430 supports up to 16GB. So what's with the 6GB?
Is it deliberately restricted? Is it a typo that's been copied onto various sites? Or am I just flaunting my ignorance of the way these things work? Any thoughts much appreciated.
