ACER Aspire 5542-1340 - Ram for Chromium and Linux (not Win7)

Hi I have an ACER Aspire 5542-1340

I have converted it to both Cloudready Chromium and Linux Ubuntu.
It has too little ram in it now and it is quite slow.

I believe the limitation of 4gb of ram is related to windows 7

Please confirm if 8gb will infact work or not.  I don't want to make the purchase to find out it won't work.
There are some posts that say some models accept 8gb

On the back it says
Aspire 5542G/5542/5242
MS2277
5542-1340

Thanks Rick M

    Some of these series can accept 8gb.   This is quite important.  I have the understanding that this is a Windows 7 issue and not one with the laptop.

    I am not using it with Windows it has been converted it to both Cloudready Chromium and Linux Ubuntu.  It works well with these OS's
