Default What exactly Does this mean

Ok This was in my compaq manual.

You can increase the amount of RAM (random access memory)
in the notebook with an optional memory module approved
by Compaq.
The notebook contains 2 memory slots, one of which is
accessible for an optional 128-MB, 256-MB, 512-MB, or
1024-MB memory module upgrade.
Depending on the notebook model, the notebook might ship with
a vacant memory slot. On other models the memory slot contains
a preinstalled memory module that can be replaced at any time.

does this mean that my 512mb(1x) that came in it cannot be removed?

No you can put more ram in it, and your 512 meg will come out.

Hmm...they do word that kind of weird dont they.

Only way to tell is pop it open and find out for sure, although that'd be pretty lame if it was not removable
