Can I change one of two of my 2.0 usb in my Flex 2 15 to 3.0 usb

I have the Flex 2 15. I bought this about 5 months ago. I love this laptop but there is just one thing i noticed that i would like to change if possible. i have 3 usb ports. one is 3.0 and the other two are 2.0. Can I change those 2.0 ports to 3.0? If not is there something I can buy that will give me more 3.0 ports? I was looking at an external 3.0 usb hub. Would that work just as fast as having two 3.0 ports on a laptop. I have a 3.0 external harddrive that i want to transfer movies to another larger 3.0 external harddrive.

I dont think you can change the USB port on this laptop (not easily, even if its possible)

 

I would recommend using a USB3.0 hub. I have a 4 port hub myself with ON/OFF switches and it works great.

I havent tested the speeds yet but looks fast enough.

 

Here is the link to the product that I bought -
