vSphere 5 is licensed on a per-processor basis. Each physical processor (CPU) in a server needs to have at least one vSphere 5 processor license key assigned to be able to run vSphere.
See the PDF for more detail http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/vsphere_pricing.pdf

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

VMware did at one time, have a vRAM TAX, but they changed it. It's gone, because Licensees were not happy with the change after 5.0 was originally launched.

Article you have copied and pasted is out of date, it refers to 5.0!

With the 5.1 license is based on Per CPU and memory limit is based on maximum mention in the configuration guide.

If you are planning for free ESXi5.1 then the memory limit is 32GB but in ESXi5.5 there is no memory limit for the Free ESXi
