I have an Aspire ES1-571-C55X and would like to upgrade the HDD to an SSD and upgrade the RAM from the current 4gb to the max (which I believe is 16gb for this model). I know this laptop is a pain to get in to, but I'm sure I'll be fine. One thing though, I noticed when looking up the specs, this model only appears to accept DDR3L memory, not DDR3. Many websites I checked, when I typed in the model number, would come back with results for DDR3 memory. I'd appreciate if someone could confirm that this is a big no no?
The unfortunate thing is, many sites either don't sell DDR3L memory or they don't know that they are due to it having the same dimensions. Is there a way to tell them apart? Some sellers on Amazon, for example, were claiming to be selling DDR3L memory when the label in the picture appeared to have a label which didn't include the "L". Maybe a stock photo or something?
It's all a shame, because I had spare 2x8gb DDR3 RAM lying around I could have put in if it was compatible, so in this case, I'd love it if someone told me for whatever reason that my Acer can take them, though I don't think that is the case.
Thankful for any advice/insight for a budding hobbyist.
