I'm interested in picking one of these ASUS laptops up for my youngest son who is entering high school next year. My first line of thinking is to upgrade the 128GB m.2 drive with a higher capacity, but don't know how easy it is to get to, so I was wondering if anyone here on the [H] has any experience working with them.

Any advice from owners or folks who have worked on or own them? Thanks in advance!

man, usually a quick search shows a video or a tear down or something.... but nothing on this model

Crucial says their m.2 is compatible with the machine so that means it is not a soldered on SSD which is good....

But Other than that I couldnt find anything on this model :(

Yeah, I had the same luck. We ended up going with a different model - actually a Chromebook, which he liked quite a bit. I appreciate your input on this though!
