Inside ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX563 – disassembly and upgrade options
Now, how does a sleek, beautiful 2-in-1 device look on the inside? Let’s take a peek.
ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX563
- Intel Core i7-10510U
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q (40W)
- 16GB RAM
- 512GB SSD
1. Remove the bottom plate
Thankfully, there are no hidden screws, which means you only need to remove the 10 visible Torx-head ones. After you do so, we would recommend starting the prying process from the hinges area and following along the edge.
Battery-wise we are looking at a 71Wh package, which should easily deal with the UHD monitor option.
3. Memory and storage
As of recently, less and fewer ultrabooks come with a RAM expansion slot. This unit is not an exclusion from the trend and only offers you the preinstalled memory chips. On the bright side, there is a single M.2 PCIe x4 slot.
4. Cooling system
If you remember our ZenBook Flip 15 UX562 review, you would know that it used only one heat pipe to cool down both the CPU and the GPU simultaneously. However, ASUS has switched its philosophy and now uses two heat pipes, each of them going to a separate heat spreader.
