What ram should I use for the Acer Aspire Revo AR1600-U910H?
I'm no longer running Windows, so the scanner won't work anymore. It's not in the ram finder.
I'm figuring the CT12864AC800 is correct, but I'd like to know for sure.

The information on this system is really limited. The type is DDR2 and there are two slots, however I unfortunately cannot confirm the speed, module form factor or maximum capacity. You will be able to install at least 1GB in each of the slots and 800MHz is a good speed to go with since memory is backwards compatible anyway.
If the module is physically 2.5" long then the part number you have below (DDR2 SODIMM) is correct. If however, it is longer, approx 5", then you will need a DIMM module which is part number CT12864AA800.
If you are able to open the system and look at the original module, it should hopefully give us more information to confirm compatibility of parts.

Honestly, it's been a week. Surely somebody from crucial could have figured this out by now. Y'all have to have contacts with all the manufacturers. (And it's been available for at least 3 months that I know of.)
They're selling like hotcakes because of this lifehacker article. It works great, but I'd still like to max out the ram.
Aspire Revo 1600. C'mon, people.

One more thing. The article should make this clear, but this machine is basically the Atom dual core Nvidia Ion LE chipset. As such, it's basically a laptop mobo in a desktop case. But I don't know of any odd mods they've done. Is there an ISO mem checker (or Linux mem checker) that y'all can recommend. I can get all sorts of info out of the system about the ram, but I don't know enough of the odd settings to know if it will need something different, or if stock stuff will work.
I just go to crucial and take what it tells me. Makes a sysadmin's life easy.
