    Try
    Code:
    free -m
    in terminal. It will show you the total RAM in your system. Not sure how to check type except by opening it up.

    Try this command in a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)

    Code:
    sudo dmidecode -t17 |grep Size
    It'll tell you what you have in each memory bank. If you have a spare blank for installing more memory, it'll also be obvious.
