The company lists Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems, but I don’t see why recent Linux distributions would not work as well. While the WiFi module and SSD should be replaceable, the RAM should be soldered on the mainboard. That means despite the processor supporting up to 16GB RAM, or possibly more, it’s not feasible to (easily) upgrade the memory.
