Detailed specs for RAM & Disks for the ES1-132-C40M

I have bought one of these in the Black Friday sales for my daughter's schoolwork and am so far very impressed - it posts about 1400 on Geekbench 4 which isn't too bad for such a value laptop. I wish I'd bought one for myself!

 

I took the back cover off and noticed that not only is the RAM upgradeable, but there is a space for an additional hard drive. So I'd like to buy:

 

  1. More RAM - I am guessing an 8Gb stick would be good
  2. An internal SSD hard disk

I have been looking for the required specs for these but can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know what RAM (variety, speed, etc) and exactly what hard disk will work in these machines?

 

The downloadable user manual just says the machine is upgradeable, without offering the essential details of how and what. The RAM stick that's in there is unmarked and offers no obvious clue as to its own specs.

 

Any ideas?

 

thanks!

    Laurent:

     

    I will have a look when I get home from work - I'll come back to you in within 12 hours time. I'll also upload some detailed photos.

     

    cheers

    Laurent:

     

    yes, I do have that socket. There's also what looks to be a power socket in the left hand side of the drive bay.

    I didn't realise it was so easy to get that RAM stick out either! So I have the details of that now too.

     

    cheers

  • Hello,

     

    First sorry for the delay. Here are the parts needed (Acer part numbers):

    Spoiler
    86.M8NN7.001SCREW M2x3.0 PH (Qty=4 - bracket/bay)
    86.SYZD7.001SCREW M3x3.0 PH (Qty=4 - bracket/HDD)
    33.GG2N7.003BRACKET.HDD
    50.GG2N7.004CABLE.HDD

    The height of the original HHDs is 7mm so the same than the SSDs cased.

     

    As I don't know the authorized service partners, I suggest you to contact your Acer support. You should be able to buy the parts needed from them.

     

    The result will be this:

    LT-ES1-132-HDD

    Mine is ES1-132-C8V3.
    I have bought a 8GB module. Then I have found out that the 2GB are embedded, and can't  be replaced. What happens if I insert this module of 8GB (in addition to the 2GB)?

    This is not a question anymore.
    I have installed the 8GB module. System report: 10 GB installed. 8GB available.
    So far, so good.
