    i'm afraid NOT, just check out every review on youtube, also due to the very low weight of 1.2kg and small screen size.  

    It is very hard to find thin laptops these days that have 1 or 2 so-dimm slots available.
    You have to start with 15+ inch, gaming or the business type laptops like Thinkpads or HP Probook.

    Thank for reply ed4myra.

    I already took some search on youtube and look at model SF314-41-R3M0 that is similar .

    This (SF314-41-R3M0)was model before SF314-42-R8A9/SF314-42-R43G that shows that the ram can be upgrade.

    I just to make sure SF314-42-R8A9/SF314-42-R43G model had a slot like the model SF314-41-R3M0 and does acer provide any 
    manual to the upgrade or does acer had some video that show this model laptop had been opened like the youtube link above?

    Yes, the SF314-41 models all have a single SODIMM socket for memory. Some SKUs have it pre-populated, some do not. Here are the relevant specs:

    Thanks billsey,

    From which site you get this info?

    Can I can the detail like this for model SF314-42-R8A9/SF314-42-R43G?

    It's from the Acer Service Guide, not publicly available. The SF314-42 is new enough that I don't have access to a SG yet, but I'm guessing it's a thin enough design that there are probably no sockets for memory or processor upgrades.

    Hi, Can I know the panel model and manufacturer for model SF314-42-R8A9/SF314-42-R43G? Is it as same as other European models that are dimmer?
  • billseybillsey ACE Posts: 19,634 Trailblazer
    I assume yoou are talking about the display itself? I don't yet have a part number for that, I would expect that it's shared for all SF314-42 SKUs.

    Hi!
    I saw that Acer Swift 3 SF314-42-R1RA from Amazon is shipped with 8gb of RAM but it does support upgrade up to 12/20gb of RAM, because one slot is upgradable (is not very clear).
    Do you know if Acer Swift 3 SF314-42 NX.HSEET.001 from Italian Acer Store does support ram upgrade? And what is the full name?

    Thank you.

    The SF412-42 models come with memory on the motherboard, soldered in, with no expansion slot. So if it's an 8GB model 8GB is it's max. The motherboard supports either 4GB, 8GB or 16GB onboard, but I think they've only shipped 8GB variants.

    Sad. Thank you!
