Can I upgrade to Win8 on my Acer Happy 2 D270 from Windows 7 Starter?
Have plan, send $NZD50m

My netbook is turning to a dog.
I was going to throw 8Gb of ram into it until I discovered that it won't help as Win7Starter only supports 2Gb.
So, I want to know if I can do an upgrade and if that will then let me add more ram or if everything will just come off the rails?

No reason why you cant upgrade if you want to. Will be fine and might even seem a bit faster if everything is to be believed about windows 8, hopefully drivers will all work and if not, you should be able to use win 7 drivers if needed.
On the ram side though, you can only put 2gb in any atom netbook. It is a hardware limitation independent of OS.
Lots of people had had reasonable results with 2GB ram and a cheap ssd though.
