Inside Acer Predator 15 (G9-593) – disassembly, internal photos and upgrade options

While you’re waiting for our in-depth review of the new Acer Predator 15 (G9-593) monster with GTX 1070, we’ll show you how it looks on the inside. The internals of the aggressive body can be relatively easy to access in just several minutes.

1. Remove the optical drive

It’s not a bad idea to start with the optical drive since it can be taken off in a second and it has hidden screws underneath. However, if you want to upgrade the RAM, M.2 or HDD, this step isn’t necessary.

2. Remove the service lid

The memory and storage are covered by a service lid which is very convenient since you don’t need to remove the whole bottom for a quick upgrade. The lid is held by two captive screws and there you’ll find two M.2 slots (1x 2280 with “M” key and 1x 22110 with “B” key), one 2.5-inch slot for the hard drive and two memory slots. There are also two more RAM slots placed on the other side of the motherboard.

3. Remove all the screws

Here comes the “hard work”. You have to remove 18 screws – two below the optical drive, 6 under the service lid and 10 near the bottom edges.

4. Take off the bottom

Now you can carefully take off the bottom – we recommend using a plastic pry tool (credit card will do the job as well) and start from the air vents on the back. Before doing anything, disconnect the battery cable so you can be sure that you won’t accidentally turn on your computer.

5. Assembly

Be careful when you’re placing the bottom back on the notebook – you could damage the HDD connector if you forget to put it through the hole in the center of the panel, before pushing it down.

Does anyone know of any M.2 SSDs on the market with the 22110 profile? All I can find is 2280s
