    I am thinking of buying hp stream7 but it only has 1 GB of RAM I really wanted 2 GB but I can afford the Stream8. I can afford to get a 2gb stick. But is the RAM soldered in or can I replace it

    The HP Stream 7 is not upgradeable as the RAM is soldered on the board, so you're stuck with what it has.

    On such a small device it's probably not modifiable

    I would say no... I imagine that the board layout is pretty tight and the fit in the case pretty close. It will definitely be soldered, not a servicable socket.

    ​It's a bargain tablet, for crying in the mud...

    what about replacing the ram in the HP Stream 8? Is it the same deal as the 7?

    Really the best way to increase the RAM on a tablet (any tablet) is to buy one with more RAM to begin with.

    ​They just aren't made to take hardware upgrades...

    If its a tablet, its almost guaranteed no. the most you can hope for is easy battery replacement from what I see.
    If its a laptop/tablet hybrid like the Dell XPS 12, maybe. (although probably not)
