I have an Asus 1018p with Ubuntu netbook version installed, and I wanted to upgrade the ram. With Windows 7 Starter, the maximum ram supported for this machine is 2 gb, and I was wondering whether the amount of ram supported by Ubuntu would be the same, or if it would be different. Also, if it's different, how would I go about finding out how much ram i could put in?

Thank you for your time.

A quick peek at Asus' website shows that yours only supports 2GB of RAM. http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=hbAiLQA6LRG0qcNH

The reason for this is because the chipset in your computer only supports 2GB of RAM, so it's a limitation of the hardware, not by which operating system you use.
