Acer Aspire One AO756 memory upgrade and SSD swap
The Acer Aspire One AO756 is a nice little laptop that is available for a quite reasonable price (usually around $270 USD). As an added perk, with a few easy upgrades it can be even better!
The AO756 allows for easy access to the RAM (memory) and unlike many of its brethren, it actually has two memory slots allowing for up to 16GB of memory to be installed! The hard drive is also easily accessible in case you want to install a nice fast SSD. 🙂
RAM: Corsair 8GB or 16GB memory upgrade
SSD: 250GB Samsung 840 EVO
Read on for a photo tutorial of taking the AO756’s bottom cover off and performing these upgrades:
Alternative 1: installing a single 4GB DDR3 SODIMM for a nice cheap upgrade. Alternative 2: installing two 8GB memory sticks for a whopping 16GB total of RAM!
I hope this tutorial was useful, happy upgrades to you! 🙂
PS Overall I give this laptop 4/5 stars for upgradeability: it is very easy to work on and supports a lot of RAM, one star is docked because it lacks an mSATA port…
