C730 Chromebook storage form factor?

Frank303Frank303 Member Posts: 3 New User

What exact type and form factor is the main storage in the C730 N2840 32GB 4GB 30cm Chromebook? It's the 11.6 in the antiquated units.

Some resellers state it is an SSD, others state it is an eMMC.

The latter isn't much use to me.

The Acer site doesn't state. 

 

Means I'm kind of screwed if I open it up to find out it has an eMMC.

    Hello,

     

    Here are all motherboards of the Chromebook C730 - N2840 series:

    Spoiler
    MAIN BD.W/CPU.N2840.MEM.2GB.EMMC.16GB.RDR
    MAIN BD.W/CPU.N2840.MEM.4GB.EMMC.16GB
    MAIN BD.W/CPU.N2840.MEM.2GB.EMMC.32GB.RDR
    MAIN BD.W/CPU.N2840.MEM.4GB.EMMC.32GB.CARD.READER

    So it is an eMMC of 32Gb.

    Oh drat! II've seen videos of the 720 ssd replacement and of' the 740 ssd replacement. I'll look at another brand.

     

    Thanks

    I haven't seen much mention of theC 730. From what I've since found it is slower than the 720. I'm coming to the conclusion that the 730 never took off because Acer changed the SSD format that was in the popular 720, they realised people want to hack the machine so changed back to M.2 SSD for the 740.

     

    Would that be a fair assessment?
