Hi. I'm thinking of buying an Acer E3-112 but only if I can replace the 500gb SATA drive with an SSD at some point. Because it's quite recent I can't find out if the hard drive is accessible and swoppable. Does anyone know, or can someone point me to a link that tells me?

Thanks

Typing your question into Google, I found loads of advise on this including:

click here I would have thought that you could also get more specific advice (and avoid affecting warranty) if you first discussed your requirements with Acer - see click here

but I would have thought your first port of call (and also to avoid any warranty repercussions) would have been to contact Acer support - see click here

I'm OK about how to do it but needed to know if there is a header in there that a new (SSD) would fit into. I know from experience that this is variable by model.

So thanks for the link to Acer - last time I tried them the chat was down and I'd forgotten about it. They were really not keen to tell me at first, but in the end said yes it can be replaced

Many thanks.
