Acer Aspire V5 Memory Config - How Many RAM Slots/How much RAM can be fitted?

We've recently bought an Acer Aspire V5 laptop and prior to purchase had great difficulty finding out the default memory configuration to see how many slots for RAM were available and how many were used.

Our Acer Apsire V5 had a Pentium B987 processor with 4Gb RAM installed. This is a single RAM chip that occupies one of the two slots available.

If you want to upgrade the RAM in your Acer Apsire V5 then you can add another RAM chip into the memory slot up to 8GB so giving a total of 12GB. If you replace the original RAM you could go as high as 16Gb of memory in your Acer Apsire V5

Google Censorship Protecting Scams

Are you aware how much Google is now protecting scams in the UK by censoring search results?

It is now possible for companies to get information removed from Google so that it isn't visible in the UK but is available elsewhere.

So the UK version of this blog only shows a Google page warning content has been removed.

But if you are outside the UK and able to view the US version of the site the information is still visible

Is this really what we want to be happening in the UK?

Certainly if information is illegal or defamatory there should be a process to get it removed but factual, true information being deleted with no legal process would make even the Chinese government proud of our systems.

Shame on you Google, maybe "Do no evil" doesn't matter when you are now a massive company!
