How to upgrade RAM and SSD on an ASUS Chromebox


ASUS gave us an official overview and demo of the ASUS Chromebox, but they didn’t go into much detail about upgrading the RAM or SSD (solid state drive). This seems to be one of the best features the ASUS Chromebox has going for it. It’s one of the only Chrome OS computers that can be easily upgraded.

We know many of you are still interested on this subject. If you want to check out the process, you may want to take a look at a video Liliputing has put together. They go as far as actually removing and putting the RAM and SSD back in. No new hardware was installed, but they shoe the process is very simple.

I just have to wonder how far you can take this. Would it be possible to get the i3 version and install like 16 GB of RAM? Maybe a 128 GB SSD? That would be one hell of an Ubuntu machine!

I know I haven’t welcomed the ASUS Chromebox very well. I am just not a fan of Chrome OS computers without portability, when specs and price on some Chromebooks are just as good. I have to say having this type of flexibility is huge, though.

I might just get myself one. What about you?
