Hello, so I found a post ON a different website mentioning that the EMMC and the LPDDR3 is soldered onto the motherboard(my model # is XE500C13). ARE there upgrades available for my motherboard?
Yes, Im desiring bigger storage AS POSSIBLE as well as MAX RAM. Im very good at desoldering components, but Im still struggling the basics on how to find UPGRADABLE COMPONENTS for MY MOBO.

Please help, and thanks in advance

:welcome:   Ralph’s ambitions,

 

Sorry to be bearer of bad news but Chromebooks are not user friendly when it comes to being upgraded, if your model is the one that has 4GB of RAM best additional storage option for you is to use an SD type card, some info for you here

Alright, thanks. I also forgot to mention something about a c-port drive or some kind of usb device. I cant remember to be honest because Ive been busy lately. That crouton stuff can be solved another time, again, I just want to upgrade it, but I already think its been solved.

Thanks though

Can you post the brand and model name or number of the Chromebook so that the specs can be checked.

 

All I really want is to install google chrome on crouton.

 

 

Someone that uses and has knowledge of both programs would be best placed to advise you so moved your thread to the more appropriate forum here, the hardware upgrades forum is for new builds and upgrading components such as video cards etc.

Having had a look around it seems that any upgrade would be either to 64 or 128GB, see info here not sure that I would go to the time, trouble and expense for such minimal gain and would instead go for an external USB HDD instead.
