The Dell Mini 10, the Mini 9's successor, which is due to start shipping later this week will come with a "fixed" 1GB of RAM, meaning, it won't be upgradable according to Dell. Does this mean that the RAM is soldered in, or fixed on the motherboard? Anyways, it's probably a result of the netbook licensing limitations they have with Microsoft. [Dell via Boing Boing]

I don't understand why a licensing deal would force them to fix the RAM. Why not just, you know, NOT offer the extra ram as BTO, per their agreement, and allow us lovely patrons to do the upgrading ourselves?
