Hi,
I have an Acer Aspire ES1-512-C5YW which is just over 4 years old and I am looking to upgrade it.
I want to change the processor, the ram and the HDD either to SSD or a higher capacity HDD.
Was just wondering if the processor is soldered in and if so what type of motherboard is in the laptop so I can get a similar one with a better processor, and what the maximum ram is.
Thanks
(This is the laptop)

    Is yours also a ES1-512? I don't see any indication they support faster than 1333MHz memory, but if yours is a PC3-12800 it's 1600MHz.
