The 2GB SODIMM uses one out of two. It is not soldered onto the motherboard so you could run 2x8GB sodimms if you really wanted to.

answer 3
The 2 gigs is on one DIMM.

Opened it up, and there are two DIMM slots.

I saw a video that you can add more than the 4Gig that Acer says. One YouTube video had someone adding 8 Gigs. Another post had someone adding 2 8 gig chips.

Good luck.

Yes. The AC adapter will regulate the correct voltage. You would just need the adapter to connect to their outlets using the AC adapter provided with the unit.

No. Even though Skype has been integrated into the Microsoft mail site (outlook.com) the plug in for skype still requires an installation of some files that the Chromebook will not accept. At this time, you cannot run any form of Skype on a Chromebook There are some alternatives to Skype, but you are most likely not interested in those. If Skype is a deal breaker, then the deal is broken.

answer 2
Not from Coupons.com , not sure about Target. Something to keep in mind is that they install spyware and make your computer slower. Most HP printers with a small touchscreen support printing from a coupons.com app installed directly to the printer itself. That way you never have to install.

If you can print from your Chromebook, then you can print those items. The Chromebook needs to use "cloud printers," which can be shared printers in your home. You cannot attach a printer directly to the Chromebook. It does not use drivers on its own.

answer 5
In order to print from your chromebook you have to setup Google cloud print to a classic printer (that is a printer connected directly to a Windows or Mac by USB). That is the most common method of printing to a traditional printer. Here is the support link that gives you instructions on how to connect Google Cloud Print to a classic printer: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/1069693?hl=en

If you have a newer generation printer that has cloud print services built in check the model number and features of your printer from the manufacturers website.
If it does come with Google Cloud Print, follow the manufacturers instructions to connect the unit to Google Cloud print.

Yes, you can add storage. There are three USB 2.0 ports and an SD Card slot. You also can switch out the SSD for a meatier SSD or an HDD. However, this will void the warranty. Also, beware that the SSD in this machine is 7 mm which is much smaller compared to the traditional 9 mm.

Not particularly expandable, but it is replaceable. The SSD is small, however at 7 mm. So, make sure that any SSD or HDD you buy to replace it is the same size or can be modified to the same size.

It can do very basic picture editing with the integrated photo editor. It can't run Adobe Photoshop. You can use Chrome apps to edit pictures. You can also run linux alongside ChromeOS on this Chromebook and run gimp for advanced picture editing.
