Details: The Acer memory settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit (Wolph v. Acer America Corp.) that claims certain Acer Notebooks contain 1 GB or less of RAM to be shared between the operating systems and the graphics, which is less than Microsoft’s requirements that a computer have more than 1 GM of RAM in order to properly run the Vista Premium OS. The plaintiffs claim that as a result of this insufficient system memory, Acer’s Notebooks suffered from freezing, crashes, lock-ups and other poor performance.

Acer denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the Acer class action settlement include all U.S. residents who bought a new Acer Notebook that came pre-installed with a Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, Business and/or Ultimate operating system, which contained 1 GB of RAM or less as shared memory for both the system and graphics, and have not returned the Notebook for a refund.

The Acer Notebooks covered under the class action lawsuit settlement include some, but not all, of the computers with the following model numbers:

Aspire 3050
Aspire 4720Z
Aspire 5570
Aspire 5630
Aspire 9410
