Thanks to Mr taxman, I've just upgraded my old eeepc to a new one. This is the one I got yesterday:

I've wiped off Windows and installed Mint 11 (and am persuing a windows refund with asus), but I have a couple of queeries.
1) The spec says Dual Core, but the system monitor clearly shows 4 cores. ???
2) I want to upgrade to 2 GB RAM, but I'm not sure exactly what to get. My brother upgraded his laptop and got the wrong speed. He had DDR3 10xx and bought 1333. The new stuff doesn't work. I don't want to make the same mistake. I've opened up the port and there's nothing on the visible side of the RAM.
Can anyone help here? Ta.
