Can anyone tell me what the maximum capacity of RAM and hard drive this laptop can handle? Also would it support Windows 7?

Specs for Gateway Mx6450

  • RAM Specs (2 x 1GB sockets)
  • Hard drive: a few upgrade sites say up to 320GB, but since the original is a 100GB/4200rpm I don't know if the sys board will support a 5400rpm, probably best to call Gateway support and ask to be on the safe side.

Should support Windows 7 32 and 64 bit (AMD Turion64) definitely get the RAM upgrade if you do install 7.
