Acer put a muscle car under the hood of this Chromebook.

Small SSD ruins the package? No, because it is upgradeable!

The default storage configuration (16GB or 32GB) on the 720 is rather paltry by today’s standard. :-( Thankfully, the C720 uses an industry standard NGFF connector for its SSD and thus can be upgraded. :-) Here is the 128GB model that I recommend:

I recently bought an adapter and am actually thinking of getting another one!

Happy upgrading!
