hdd can be upgraded to biggest and faster u can find.

the interface is sata2.

i also upgraded first to 160gb 7200rpm and then to 250gb 7200rpm.

after this upgrades ....bought a ssd......best upgrade ever!

 

as for memory i know that it supports max 4gb (even if i read over the net that it will go  up 2 8gb.....but didnt try it).
