He did but because he foolishly ignored our pleas for 4 mb to be standard, he put the ram on the back of the board and then discovered dual sided soldering was going to make the 4 mb version too expensive and dropped it as an option.
This is why I and many others refused to buy one, 2 mb was just useless unless you put down even more cash for an aca12xx.
