Last i checked the chromebook memory card or whatever they call it is one with the motherboard so i highly doubt it will be upgradeable at the moment. When/if google gives the go ahead local places like best buy & their Geek Squad might be able to upgrade the memory

I have read several places that its soldered to the motherboard. Can it be expanded? Maybe if you can "piggy-back" on top of the existing ram. Or, de-solder and add a new stick if the mb will support it.

For what purpose?

The 2GB memory and the 16GB SSD of the Cr-48 are "permanently" installed. Sometimes it's a challenge to alter the thinking we've often used with Windows or OSX-based computers when considering a completely different approach to a personal computer.

Thus far there hasn't been a compelling reason to upgrade either the SSD or the memory of the systems.

Atom CPU can only allocate 2gigs of RAM. Acer and Samsung Chromebooks will come with RAM maxed out.
