This is not for beginners. Acer did not design this to be a user serviceable item.
Try this at your own risk. The author assumes no responsibility if you fail.

NOTE: the keyboard and mouse ribbons (attaching the keyboard to the mobo) are a little tricky. To release the widest ribbon slide the two white tabs out (but not off) of the connector on the motherboard. The narrow ribbon, flip a little bar, on the connector, up.
I used 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD
FYI, there is only one slot for RAM.
The computer is very inexpensive (I bought it for $170 at Fry's) but for just browsing and basic business functions it works great, after the upgrade. Originally is was almost too slow to use.
As with all computers, I suggest running Linux
