I Believe you can put an SD card in the side to expand storage. But I don't know the answer about the internal upgrade. I've opened up a chromebook before and it seems the storage is soldered to the motherboard.

What if you unsoldered it?

That would require being very skilled at microsoldering. I mean, If you have the equipment and knowledge to do so go for it! But buying the equipment would really not be worth it. https://ifixit.org/blog/7321/know-about-...

I think you could as the Wireless chip is in the place an SSD would go. I am not 100% sure that you can, but you can try. Also, if you manage to do it, you risk your Internet.

No you cannot do that. The Wi-Fi adapter is using a type of PCI (probably PCIe Half-Mini) While the storage would use M.2 (either M.2 PCIe or M.2 SATA)
