Inside Acer Swift 3 (SF314-42) – disassembly and upgrade options

As with most thin and light laptops on the market right now, the biggest sacrifice you make is upgradeability.

Check out all Acer Swift 3 (SF314-42) prices and configurations in our Specs System or read more in our In-Depth review.

1. Remove the bottom plate

What separates you from the internals of this notebook are 10 Phillips-head screws and some clips. After you undo the screws, just pry the panel away with a plastic tool.

2. Battery

For the battery, you get a 50Wh unit.

3. Memory and storage

How about upgradability? Unsurprisingly, you can only upgrade the storage via the single M.2 PCIe x4 slot. This means that the memory is soldered to the motherboard, and you can only get either 8 or 16GB before making the purchase.

4. Cooling system

Here, we see a very modest cooling setup, including only a single, thin heat pipe. Interestingly, most of the chip is exposed, so you can read some of the markings on top of it. Yep, this also means that no VRMs are actively cooled, but to be honest, the 15W TDP limit won’t put too much pressure on them.
