Martin was looking into memory upgrades last Fall. Maybe he can provide an update.


For now, it might be more useful and more universal to follow the "HP-IL to PC" or "HP-IL to SD card via Filbert" way to add a larger working disc to avoid the 9114 disc drive. This could probably be similar in speed to a RAM disc.


With a PILBox and the latest ILPer, you can create and use up to approx 10MB emulated Drive, however HP-IL disk I/O on the Portable Plus is extremely slow, making a RAM disk seem incredibly fast by comparison, but it depends on what you're reading and writing of course.
