this is the better buy...it's the model that was a bargain £499 at Tesco a few months ago..so a little more expensive but well worth it.

edi...the reference in your post to 7600 graphics is incorrect...the lappy in the deal has shared 950 graphics.

A work colleague bought this laptop but with 1GB of RAM delivered for £430 from Currys of all places.

I'd carefully check the actual physical ram in Acer machines. I bought one recently that had 128MB less than that specified on the box!

Acer's are great laptops, I've had two and I only replaced the original cos the first one was knicked. I'd avoid Vista though

Was that not because the graphics was using that part of the ram, ie shared memory?

It was what windows reported as 'Total Physical Memory'.

You're most probably right, just thought it was strange that it was 128mb, wouldn't have thought it was possible to leave out 128mb worth of sticks as they are probably in 256 or 512 blocks. Also 128mb is the right size for the graphics card to use.

Theres a 17" Acer in PCWorld which claims to have 1GB of ram but it shows as 768 on the machine itself, even tho the gfx card claims to be a 128MB. So i dunno whats going on with the Acer machines and their RAM lol.

Decent spec machine tho for the price, could do with 1GB of RAM tho!
#9
i think its acers fault they have the same model number but loads of different specs
just like the one i'm on now

its the 5633wlmi
and there are about 10 different models under this series

The laptop has 1GB of RAM.

DDR(2) RAM, at the moment, comes on sticks with three possible values. 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB (and maybe 2048MB soon).

Therefore, a possible combination might be or 256+256 or 512+512 or 1024+1024.

To get 128MB less than 1GB (or 1024MB) you would have to have 896MB of RAM, which is an impossible combination of sticks in a laptop. You would need 512+384 (or 512+256+128, but noone would ever sell that, and very few laptops have three slots).

To get 768MB main RAM you would have to have 512+256, and again noone will sell that.

Which leads on to my main point:

Shared Graphics have that name for a reason. THEY SHARE SYSTEM RAM.

Therefore the graphics card shares 128MB of the total physical RAM, and depending on the card, drivers and OS will most likely reserve that total so the OS does not use it.

Some will reserve an amount and have another section that is dynamically resizable, thereby reserving 128MB but having capability to grab more when needed. This can be seen particularly in Vista, where for example my 256MB Geforce Go 7600 has 256MB dedicated and 495MB Shared. In XP it has just the 256MB dedicated. This is down to the OS, not the laptop hardware.

Anyway, back to my main point.

If you find a laptop that is not reporting its RAM as a nice round number (512, 1024) it is down to the shared graphics. It is not because the specification is wrong or different.

Please, if you don't actually know the answer please don't spread or perpetuate a misconception. I have enough trouble trying to correct people already. Thank you. Rant over.
