    probably has a special one. There should be a specific one made for the laptop though. Do you need it for extra space or because it has failed ?

    You can replace it quite easily. Think acers come with a three year parts warranty, worth looking into that, or you could just use your ipad :whistling:

    Surely the mighty BG1 wouldn't have an Acer?, did you forget to add it's for a friend in the OP?
