We have a couple of HP Mini Notebook computers with 2GB of ram.  One of our guys wants to find one with more memory, but I haven't been able to.  

Does anyone one of a netbook/notebook with a 10 or 10.1" screen, more than 2GB of ram and Windows 7 Professional?

    Think you may struggle to find a netbook with more ram and windows 7 pro. Netbooks are designed with atom processors and less memory to make them run as long as possible.

    If you don't mind the screen be slightly larger (11.6") check out the Lenovo ThinPad Edge 11.

    Many of the netbook motherboards will only support 1GB per slot (2GB maximum) or even come with only one slot for memory.  So even if you got 4GB in there, it may only have 2GB available.
