Any idea if we can add extra RAM, and how difficult would that be.

I bit. No rebates, tax or ship with fairly solid reviews makes this much slicker for me than previous gaming offerings recently.

I don't have this specific model but a similar one (FX502VM). RAM upgrade is easy but only one slot available (8GB soldered, one slot available).
The screen, assuming this has the same TN panel, is pretty atrocious. The screen is supposedly fairly easy to upgrade so I have an IPS panel arriving today.

I just was doing a little research on youtube and it seems the TN vertical view angle is very poor. Where did you buy the IPS panel? and how much was it?

I got it off of Amazon for $60 (Lp156wf6(sp)(b6)). We'll see if they actually send that model or a "compatible" panel...
Panels on laptopscreen.com seem to range from $50~$75 for other compatible panels.
