Question

Model numbers

Hi, I am wondering if laptop specifications can vary within the same exact model number. specifically, the Acer Aspire E model # E5-575T-58WH on its own website lists 8g of DDR4 SDRAM, While on Best Buy's website the exact same model number laptop is listed with 8g SODIMM DDR3. The other discrepancy I found was Acer website says keyboard is backlit, while Best Buy says it is 'no'. Could there be a chance Best Buy website is wrong, or is this a common thing?

It's a common thing.

Models can have small variations so you have to get the box and recheck out the specs and model numbers.

You omitted the BB link so I can't see if the BB model is a variant.

I guess I should add that I am Canadian. that laptop on sale is good price for me. I have a 750gb SSD for it. I just have to do the research to learn how to get a fresh install of windows 10 onto it.
