Hey, you have two variables there. To measure how big a difference dual channel makes, you should compare 1x1GB with 2x512MB instead so that you have the same total amount of memory in both cases.

Among all the offerings in x60 tablets, some come in pair of module when others in single for the same capacity for the 1GB models. Do those with 2x 512MB actually perform better than those with a single 1GB piece because of DDR2? If I have a single 1GB, should I change to 2x 512MB or get another 1...

You should check the service manuals, but I don't see any reason why you can't install the memory yourself even if you can't configure the machine with the memory you want.

Re: Configurator up and running

It's up indeed, but rather disappointing that you cannot get more than 1.5GB RAM unless you use a slower type of RAM. Anything up to 1.5GB you get PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz , but once you configure more than 1.5GB , it only offers PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM 533MHz. :( In 2GB case, can we configure 2 chip...
