Question If I bought this could I do that...


If I bought this could I replace the emmc with my SSD and the 8 GB ddr3 from my current laptop then reload Ubuntu? Basically I'm pretty sure that it's the mobo that's dying in mine but I have no $ other than a few hundred my folks give me for necessities each month. I have to get my computer working so that I can start earning a paycheck. Would this work?

I think the flash chips are soldered on, but it does have an SD slot.
