There are no slots for RAM at all on this particular model

Theoretically it is still possible - by replacing half of the motherboard (including Atom CPU).
In practice, it is not worth it - it would cost fortune and complete netbook dismantling would be required

Your not replacing half the MoBo, it's a daughter board/module that has RAM and CPU on one card.
I have a 1GB 1010 too and haven't seen anything on pricing, but I'd bet you'd be better off just buying a 2GB 1010 from the outlet, and yes, would require opening the case.

I am very interested in doing this as well. my back ground with
soldering and replacing surface mount parts is very good :-)

I do this all day long at work.

Been doing this for about 25 years now. just need to know what chips
to get.
Thanks,
Jeff
