Synopsis: Android Central shows Acer C720 Chromebook users how to upgrade their stock drive to a 128GB MyDigitalSSD Super Cache 2 42mm SATA III (6G) M.2 NGFF in only 30 minutes!

Andrew Matonik over at Android Central has written up a clear and easy-to-follow guide for Acer C720 Chromebook users of all experience levels to upgrade their stock 42mm SATA M.2 NGFF SSDs to a higher capacity.

After some research, he chose to upgrade using a 128GB MyDigitalSSD Super Cache 2 SATA III (6G) drive based on positive reviews from other MyDigitalSSD users who've made similar swaps.

While there were no bench tests similar to UMPC Portal's Acer C720 upgrade guide, Andrew did end up with a fully maximized laptop in the time it takes to have a pizza delivered!

Here are a few excepts:

"The upsides of this SSD type are size and speed, and as you can see from the picture above these drives are absolutely tiny."

"Before we start break out the screwdriver, it's necessary that we remind folks the process of opening up your Chromebook and replacing the drive will void any factory warranty you have. The hard-to-remove sticker covering the last screw to remove the bottom plate tells you as such, but it's important to reiterate."

"Our 128GB SSD yielded 107.2GB of available storage after our Chromebook was signed in and synced our settings, extensions and a (small) handful of Google Drive items. That's nothing to shake a stick at for a $99 drive upgrade."

"Altogether our SSD upgrade took about 30 minutes, even with taking our time to make sure things were just right every step of the way."
