Quad core mobile is already on the Intel roadmap, with availability soon. The G45 chipset is listed as supporting 16GB. On a desktop, this can be achieved with 4 DIMM sockets and 4GB DIMMs, a commonly available part. On a notebook, with 2 DIMM sockets, you need 8GB SO-DIMM, which is announced but not widely available yet. Dual HD (SATA) is already in the cheap Vostro 1700 (yes I got it as soon as it can out).
