2GB RAM only 1.79GB

I bought this notebook the other day click here and was told it had 2GB RAM. When i check the system properties it tells me that i have 1.79MB RAM.
I have looked over the specs in tha ad and literature i got with the system and it all says 2GB RAM.
My Question: Is this acceptable?
Maybe this is common practice to 'round it up' or should it actually be 2GB?

Marg7 is right and thats the reason it only shows 1.79 gig. You do get some laptops that have their own dedicated memory but theres very few of them.
What you have is common and is nothing to be concerned about.
You do have 2 gig of memory but it is shared between the graphics and the system. All companies do this.
