I just recently bought a new netbook, it's an Acer AO725-0691. It comes with 2GB of memory, but apparently it can hold up to 4GB. Since memory is so cheap, I thought I might try upgrading it. My biggest question, of course, is what kind of RAM does it use? How do I find this out? I am pretty sure that it can only take one stick of RAM, so it would have to be 1 4GB stick, and not 2 2GB sticks. Is there any other considerations I should make? Since this is my first time upgrading RAM on a computer (since I am a noob) any tips, suggestions, or advice would be welcome.

You can use netbook memory. But you need to know the supporter memory speed. Check with cpu-z to find out memory speed and then buy a 4gb memory stick with matching speed.
Okay, so the only difference I am seeing between the memory shown on Crucial is the voltage and one has DDR-1066, the other is DDR-1333. Is the voltage significant (is more better)? I assume DDR-1333 is better.
DDR3-1333 is better but it seems like your netbook dosent support more than DDR3-1066. But DDR3-1333 may work.
the crucial one is at 1.5 volts same as the one you use now, your stick at jedec 5 could do 685 x2 = give 1370 so the 1333 is max speed for the crucial but your system will run them lower there been test with your system model
