    Question Acer Aspire One Ram Limit?

    any ideas?
    I've seen one on ebay with 2gb of ram but some site mentioned a max of 1.5? also what ram as a youtube guy posted a upgrade using pc5300 IIRC and the american site that previously mentioned the 1.5gb limitation said that it used 4200? which is it. I know that the ram might be able to run at 4200 but if you can buy 4200 as easy i imagine it'd be cheaper right?

    so can I whack say and extra 2gb with either the 512mb/1gb in there or am i limited to half a gig or say 2gb total?
    cheers

    Re: Acer Aspire One Ram Limit?

    hmm am i right in thinking the 1gb has a longer battery life... also info on ram...
    i wish Acer would offer a 512mb/120gb model with a 6-cell battery. it sucks that you have to buy the 1gb-ram model to get the bigger battery. the 1gb model is a bit of a waste if you plan to upgrade the memory to 1.5gb, because the 1gb model has 512 onboard, and a 512 stick of ram. this means youll be tossing that 512 stick if you want to upgrade. and the 6cell battery itself is almost half the price of the system $129. i think ill be buying the 1gb/120gb model, and just sell the 512 stick

    Re: Acer Aspire One Ram Limit?

    I believe it has a 1.5gb limit and will take any sodimm ddr2 sticks that are 1gb in size to get that.

    There is a 1gb version which has a 6 cell battery, but there is also one that doesn't so its a bit confusing. They have seperate model numbers though.

    Great little machine these. Just got mine on friday and I love it. Just about to do the ram upgrade on it.

    i think that the chipset has a 2gb limit, as the msi wind, but the acer comes with 512mb soldered to the board and either a free slot in the 512mb model or a 512 module in the slot in the 1gb model meaning that the maximum you could get is 1.5gb

    Re: Acer Aspire One Ram Limit?

    I can now confirm two things.

    Firstly 1gb sticks work fine.

    Secondly, its a really difficult upgrade to perform. Why acer didn't stick a little panel for the ram on the base god only knows! You have to remove tons of stuff just to get to the damn ram slot!

    I'll get a guide up later.
