installing a hard drive into a Acer Chromebook

seeknpseeknp Posts: 1Member New User
Hi. I used to live in NZ where I had an Acer Chromebook which had a 320gb hard drive. I am now in the UK and I would like to know if it is possible to install the hard drive from my old Chromebook into another Acer Chromebook ? If so how would it affect the operation of the Chromebook? Also which models of Acer Chromebooks can accommodate this hard drive and are  both 11 and 14 inch models able to be used. Thank you Alistair Clarke, Newport. South wales

    Sorry, most new budget chromebooks can only use the HDD externally through the USB port. Usually not enough room or mainboard connector to accomodate a 2.5" HDD or SSD inside the case. Jack E/NJ
