Hey everyone, I just recently purchased this laptop, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... and I was looking around newegg to potentially upgrade the memory to 8GB. Though I do not know which speed is supported since it only says ddr3 8500 (1066), I would like to get the fastest speed possible since 8 gb laptop memory is pretty cheap compared to ddr2. Anyone have the supported RAM types for this laptop?

Supported is DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 (non-ECC). However, the BIOS will only allow DDR3-1066/PC3-8500 according to Acer; see -> http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/LX.R4402.263

Crucial - http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Aspir...

To know, boot into the BIOS and see if DRAM/Memory Frequency options are available; otherwise there's no point in getting anything faster. Also, DDR3 1066 CAS 7 is slightly faster than DDR3 1333 CAS 9; think of Frequency as speed but Higher CAS and l-o-n-g-e-r stops. In any case the difference is 1%~3% tops and unnoticeable.
