I want to upgrade the SSD in my Chromebook and I know the 128 GB SSD option works, but would the 256 GB work as well?

I'm basing my evidence on this article: http://www.androidcentral.com/how-upgrade-ssd-your-acer-c720-chromebook

and this one: http://www.umpcportal.com/2014/01/how-to-upgrade-the-acer-c720-chromebook-with-an-m-2-sata-from-mydigitalsdd/

I understand that these articles were made before the 256 GB edition was released, and after doing research as to whether this option was tested, I couldn't come up with anything.

This is the SSD people refer to: http://www.amazon.com/MyDigitalSSD-256GB-240GB-Bullet-Proof/dp/B00B3X73EE and you can see they offer a 256 GB option; would this still work since it is essentially the same model but different storage size?

Any help would be appreciated, I'm thinking about getting this Chromebook http://www.amazon.com/Acer-C720-Chromebook-11-6-Inch-4GB/dp/B00FNPD1OY/ref=sr_1_5?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1398192221&sr=1-5&keywords=chromebooks and installing Linux on it for my College Computer Science class; I don't need anything fancy and I feel this would be a cost effective option.

If anybody has any input on my laptop choice, that would help as well. Thank you!
