Inside ASUS X509 – disassembly and upgrade options

ASUS X509 has a surprisingly good looking externals. However, on the inside, we saw some indications of cost-cutting.

1. Remove the bottom plate

There are a total of 10 Phillips-head screws holding the bottom panel. In addition to that, there are some clips, that have to be popped with a plastic tool. Keep in mind that the material here is not of the best quality, which ultimately means you can damage the laptop quite easily.

2. Battery

On the other side, the battery is extremely easy to be removed. There are three Phillips-head screws that lock it in place. As of the unit, itself, it has a 32Wh capacity, which is disappointing for a 15-inch notebook.

3. Memory and storage

As far as upgradability is concerned, this laptop is pretty strong. While there are 4GB of RAM already soldered to the motherboard, there is also one RAM DIMM that can add up to a maximum of 16GB of memory. Additionally, on the top side of the machine, you can find an M.2 PCIe x2 slot, while the 2.5″ SATA slot is located on the bottom right.

4. Cooling system

In terms of cooling, the X509 features a bizarre execution. There are no heat pipes, but just a little heat spreader placed right on top of the processor. Then, air is blown towards it, while plastic rails on the bottom plate guide the airflow from the fan, through the heat spreader, all the way to the side of the machine.
