How easy was the upgrade? I'm looking at this laptop for the first time so I haven't seen photos of the underside yet. I'm undecided on whether I'd upgrade the hard drive or not. Is the DVD drive fairly standard like they used to be? It's been a few years since I've opened a laptop. I was thinking about finding a decent laptop and swapping the DVD drive for a BD-ROM. Would that be a difficult upgrade on this unit? I have a BD recorder on my desktop, and the blank BD-Rs have come down in price. I know the USB hard drives are cheaper - and I use them too, but you don't have to worry about accidentally dropping a BD-R or DVD-R.
Anyway... drifted a bit. How difficult are upgrades on this model? Even if I don't do it immediately, I'd probably max it out later to 4GB and whatever the largest and still affordable hard available is.
