Inside Acer Swift X (SFX14-41G) – disassembly and upgrade options
Unfortunately, the memory here is nonupgradable. However, the Swift X has its other strong features.
1. Remove the bottom plate
To get inside of this device, you need to remove all 11 Torx-head screws. After that, take the bottom panel away with the help of a plastic pry tool.
It has a battery pack with a capacity of roughly 59Wh.
3. Мemory and storage
Sadly, the memory is soldered to the motherboard, and as for now, there are two options. Either 8 or 16GB of dual-channel RAM. On the other hand, the storage options comprise two M.2 PCIe x4 slots.
4. Cooling system
Lastly, there is the essential part of the notebook – the cooling. It is made of two heat pipes, a decently sized heat sink, and a pretty large fan.
