Chromebook Research

Posted by CameronW -

I recently purchased a HP Chromebook 14.I found a cheap listed secondhand item, looked to be a bit messy - apparently it’s major malfunction was a DOA internal battery - a replacement worth another $99 from a NZ Supplier.I also have now, a redunandant 64G mSATA card - which was the OS drive for my linux server which was discomissioned after I migrated to a Mac mini & while during that migration, I suffered a massive drive failure.After doing some investigation, I found that the mSATA SSD & the battery are basically the only two user replacable components (ignoring the daughter board).- Disassembly of HP Chromebook 14 & upgrade of its SSD!
