Despite the fact that the G501 and UX501 are practically the same notebooks with different colors, we are obligated to do one of our short articles with the internal photos and upgrade options. Before we begin, we must say that this notebook is really easy to disassemble and looks really tightly packed – just how we like them.
1. Removing the bottom cover
In order to do so, you will need to remove 10 small screws and two more located under the back silicone “legs”. Then the cover comes off pretty easily.
2. Components – HDD, SSD, Battery and etc.
Removing the bottom cover would be enough to do your spring cleaning of the fan as well as do an upgrade on your HDD, SSD, change the battery or add another RAM chip. Speaking of which, the UX501 features only one RAM chip slot which is a bit of a letdown. However, the other components are:
- Hitachi (HGST) 1TB HDD
- M.2 SATA PCIe x4 256GB SSD with B&M key, 2280-sized by SanDisk
- Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 7260 HMW Wi-Fi module
- The battery is C14N1416 (60 Wh / 3800 mAh, 15.2 V)
