I see their specs say "memory capacity 1GB", but it also says "slots (total) 
2" and "slots (available) 1".

This is a little confusing. I want to know if I can get 2GB of RAM. I assumed 
that one of the 2 slots was occupied with a 1GB stick, and I could put a 
second 1GB one in the second slot.

But "memory capacity 1GB" would seem to imply I can't do that, or perhaps they 
mean it can only handle 1GB DIMMs, and not 2GB ones?

elektron: Since you have one of these, does it in fact have a second DIMM slot 
that's empty, and can I put a second GB into that?

They have got to stop having marketing types write the specs :-)
