How much RAM can the S360 support?

I would also recommend upgrading to a 7200rpm drive. Which one you upgrade first will depend on your usage. If you use anything memory intensive (ie, you don't reformat your drive to remove all of the Sony garbage, you run server apps like SQL Server, you play model-intensive games like WoW and HL2, etc) then you will benefit from 512MB more than the higher rpm drive.

Speaking of formating. Is it wise to format my s360p with an OEM version of windows xp pro? Driver issues? I heard some people had trouble getting the FN keys to work again. Thanks for the advice
