Inside ASUS ExpertBook B7 Flip (B7402F) – disassembly and upgrade options
We are really impressed by the upgrade options of this notebook. It is not too difficult to open either.
1. Remove the bottom plate
To access this laptop’s internals, you need to undo a total of 12 Phillips-head screws. Then, pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool, starting from the back.
Inside, we see a 63Wh battery pack. It lasts for 12 hours and 30 minutes of Web browsing, or 9 hours of video playback. To remove it, unplug the battery connector, and undo all 6 Phillips-head screws keeping it in place.
3. Memory, storage, and cooling
Here, the memory is hidden beneath a protective metal shroud. You can take it out by removing three Phillips-head screws. Then, gently lift it away. This reveals two SODIMM slots, which fit up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM in total. The storage is also protected by a metal shroud but this one is way easier to remove. It hides a single M.2 PCIe x4 slot.
Now, the cooling is really interesting. There are two heat pipes, which are connected to a heat sink of regular size. A third one finds itself attached to the side of the fan housing, which is thermally conductive and helps dissipate even more heat.
