QuestionCan I Upgrade Beyond 4GB RAM in My Acer Extensa 5630Z Laptop? Pin

My laptop is an Acer Extensa 5630Z that currently has 3GB of RAM. That page says I can only uprade to 4GB, but I wonder if that was just a hypothetical maximum, perhaps based on the largest RAM modules available when I bought my laptop. My question is if I could install, say, two of these 4GB sticks for a total of 8GB. My laptop is 64-bit capable, and that RAM is the proper type, so I don't see why there would be an arbitrary limit of 4GB (assuming I install Windows 7 64-bit).

I first tried to ask Acer over a chat if this would be possible, but let's just say I don't have much confidence in the support person's knowledge (he indicated 4GB is the max). Here is the shortened conversation for your review and amusement:
Me: I was considering buying some RAM for my Acer Extensa 5630Z. I was curious if there were any limitations of the size I could install. For example, could I get 2 PC-5300 DIMMs that are each 4GB (for a total of 8GB)?
Me: Just as an example, I found some RAM on NewEgg with the description "G.SKILL 4GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Laptop Memory". I was thinking of buying 2 of those.
Him: You can upgrade up to maximum of 4 GB.
Him: Up to 2 GB of DDR2 667 MHz memory, upgradable to 4 GB using two soDIMM modules.
Me: Is that a limitation of the other hardware in the laptop, or was that just the largest amount of memory that was tested, or is that a software limitation?
Him: It will tested with maximum memory, and the system performance will affect, if you exceed the maximum memory.
Him: You can upgrade up to 4 GB RAM.
Me: OK, I just want to be sure there's no chance I could upgrade to 6GB or 8GB. I thought perhaps this type of RAM may not have been available when my laptop was made. Do you know that level of detail?
Him: I am sure, your system will compatible up to 4 GB up gradation only.

Have any idea of whether or not I should be able to do more than a "4 GB up gradation"?
