Can I install an SSD on Acer Z3-600
Firstly, your Acer Z3-600 is an all in one computer system
and you have to be very careful when disassembling it as to not break things
and also, its allot of work to change the drive, you have to know what you are
doing. To improve perfoormance increase the RAM, CPU and put an SSD and that will increase your performance as the Acer Z3-600 comes with 4GB RAM and a spinner HDD, the CPU is your option (if your OEM CPU is the Intel Pentium J2850 or lower spec) that is if you want to go to the extreme?
The Acer Z3-600 can take max RAM memory of 8GB-DDR3L-1600
SODIMM and has 1x slot (1 bank of 1) for its RAM and comes with OEM memory of 4GB
removable. It also has a serial ATA drive that supports 1x SATA version, SATA 3
- 6GB/s 2.5 inch SSD. You can also upgrade the CPU but, it depends on what your
OEM CPU is? If your Acer Z3-600 OEM CPU comes with the socket BGA1170 Intel Pentium J2850 that has no turbo boost and it runs at max 2.41GHz speed with 4 core, 4 threads, 2MB L2 cache and 10W TPD you can upgrade it to the highest spec Intel Pentium J2900 that has turbo boost and has 4
core, 4 threads, 2.41GHz to 2.667GHz, 2MB L2 cache and 10W TPD which is the
top of the range and highest CPU that will give you more performance, simple.
StevenGen...thank you. Great and thorough answer...By the way, I've done replacements of motherboards and hard drives on laptops, so I should be able to handle it. I've worked on computers since the Compaq luggable with extended memory. Just in case you picture with the moniker OldWindowsGuy as an old guy who's never opened a box. But, your caution is very much appreciated.
Yes that’s fair enough but and with AIO’s they are much
trickier to open and they do break easily as they are a bugger to work on, that
is why I thought to mention and caution a community member and also assist with
CPU upgrades and/or mainboard upgrades. I’ve been working on computers since
the 386’s days so I’m in the same boat as you. I’ve been a computer engineer
and programmer (I’m retired now) and are more than glad to help out on this
forum as I have worked on computers since the early 1980’s and I do appreciate
your knowledge and/or expertise. I’m glad that I could be of help and cheers.
Let me know if you are ever passing through Delaware...
