Acer Chromebook R13 - upgradability

Hello,

 

I have just received my R13 and I would like to ask if it can be upgraded on hardware level? Speaking about RAM and SDD of course.

 

Many thanks for any help and tips in advance,

 

Martin

    I had someone look at the manual for me, and sure enoujgh the processor, memory and storage are all soldered to the main board.

    Product code should be NX.GL4EC.002, is it possible?

  • billseybillsey Posts: 5,688ACE Pathfinder

    OK, a quick Google says that is a CB5-312T-K1RC. I don't have access to the manual for that new model, but have put in a request. It's most immediate predecessor, the CB5-311 models, have both the memory and flash drive soldered to the motherboard. No real route to expansion there. That is pretty typical for a design that needs to keep costs as low as possible. I'll ping back if I can find a manual.
