    Maximum supported memory? (Gazelle/Serval)

    I'm trying to figure out how these laptops can be configured with up to 16GB of ram, and yet the processor options available only support 8GB of ram.

    Or is the Intel website just giving me bad information?

    That would be the fault of the Intel Website. I'm not sure why they state a max of 8GB, but we have tested the systems with 16GB and it works great.

    That's good to hear, especially for those of us who disdain using swap.

    On another note... Any chance of getting an option for a hard drive caddy in place of the optical drive for either model? The Malibal Lotus series has this option, and it appears to share the same platform as the Gazelle/Serval. Having the option to have a caddy instead of an optical drive would tip the scales in 76's favor.

    I'll be buying a new laptop in about 2 months time, and dual HD's is on my must-have list.

    We don't support any options like that out of the factory. However, you may be able to do it after you receive it. We don't do any testing with those, so I couldn't tell you which one to look at.
