Default odd dell mem thing?

ok so on a previous post i was wanting to know if it was worth it to upgrade my ram in my dell 1520 form 2 to 3 gigs of ram. well i just recently took the memory plate of the bottom of the laptop and two my surprise there is only one stick of ram that says 1 gig and no extra ram slot.but plugged into the ram area is some round blue thing that looks like a battery. now when i look at my system specs on my pc is shows 2046 ram how is this possible and is dell ripping people off?

Not many things have integrated ram on them. I think some smart phones do (just a guess) but i do know that the PS3 has integrated ram on the Mobo

Yeah never heard of integrated RAM, how about you call them up, cause if they made a mistake, they can give 1GB without charging you.
