    Yes, there are RAM expansions available.
If nothing else, I have seen up to 1M
advertised in Analog as plugging into
the cartridge port.
    Software availability is another matter.
Most current software is set up to use
the 130XE system -- which many upgrades don't
conform to.  Whoever supplies you with
the hardware, however, usually at least
sends along some "RAM-Disk" utilities.
    My best recommendations are to get
the details of any possible upgrade, 
first, then make the best choice you can.
                       Your Co-sysop
