I don’t believe this! I don’t know who is dumber.. the ignorant customer who thought 1GB RAM is sufficient for Vista, or Acer, who thinks they could pull off this stunt of selling under-spec ed machines.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in San Francisco last Wednesday, Lora and Clay Wolph said that the Aspire notebook they bought in April 2008 “would not run properly” and would constantly freeze or crash when they tried to run Vista Home Premium.

Acer responded: ‘If the system does not run properly, please not that Windows Vista recommended requirements for the memory is 1GB of system memory. However, the minimum requirements is 512MB of memory in which your system is pre-installed with. This means that the system is still able to run Windows Vista properly.

Looks like Acer didn’t have a choice but to come out with this desperate answer. We all know that 1GB RAM for Windows Vista is a joke, let alone 512MB RAM! These days where RAM is dirt cheap, it should be illegal to sell 1GB machines. In fact, I required 2GB for my Windows XP machine!

Anyways, read up the whole story at Computerworld.
