    That makes sense, it seems that there is some issue with the memory controller here. The boot screen reports that the memory is 64 bit on the single 2gb stick and 128bit on the dual 512Mb stick...

    Yeah that's my point. DDR2 is much less than half the cost of DDR. At least here it is. I think they are trying to discourage upgrades and get us to buy new gear all around.
