Inside ASUS VivoBook S15 S533 – disassembly and upgrade options
While the VivoBook S15 S533 is a great piece of machinery, the upgradability is still not on point.
ASUS VivoBook S15 S533
- Intel Core i7-10510U
- NVIDIA GeForce MX250 (25W)
- 16GB RAM
- 512GB SSD
1. Remove the bottom plate
So, there are 10 Torx-head screws preventing you from removing the bottom panel. After you unscrew them, work your way around the panel with a plastic pry tool or a guitar pick.
Battery-wise there is a 50Wh unit.
3. Memory and storage
Sadly, all of the memory here is soldered to the motherboard. You can get the device with either 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and there are no options for upgrades. However, things sit differently in the storage department. The VivoBook S15 has two M.2 PCIe slots.
4. Cooling system
Now, let’s take a look at the cooling solution. Here, we see a single but pretty fat heat pipe. It cools both the CPU and the GPU and ends up at a beefy heat sink.
