switching out hard drives

Yikes!!! The motherboard on my Acer Aspire 5720 blew up. I needed more storage space anyway, so instead of repairing it, I got a Lenovo Idea Pad Y560 with tons of storge.

But, as my luck goes with computers, after only a few months, it got knocked off my desk, which ruined the screen and rendered it useless.

I am in too much $$ already- and was wondering... If i replaced the motherboard on the Acer, could I take the hard drive from the Lenovo and put it in the Acer.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be very much appreciated!!!

Yes you could. Don't expect the OS on it to work though, you'd have to reinstall.
