I'm betting it's 2GB.
1> The manual says so: http://support.euro.dell.com/support...n/sg/sg_en.pdf
2> The desktop boards with two slots support up to 4GB max.

It's 2GB. Note that in the 1012, it's the Atom processor that has the memory controller, not the NM10 chipset. See http://download.intel.com/design/pro...hts/322847.pdf section 1.2.1.
I find this somewhat surprising since the processor supports 64-bit mode.
I also find it confusing that this spec, like the one for the 945GSE chipset, states a max of 1GB per SO-DIMM, but we know that's not true... Looking further in the spec I see some text that implies a DIMM may actually have 2GB. Maybe I can find some of my Intel associates and ask about this.

So, 2GB of RAM max, it seems, but at least we have the benefit of running 64-bit OSes and software (performance wise, mainly in OS X).
