Inside Dell Inspiron 14 5406 2-in-1 – disassembly and upgrade options

Most convertible laptops on the market lack RAM upgradability, which makes them a less optimal option for the future. This is why we were surprised with what we found inside the Inspiron 14 5406 2-in-1.

1. Remove the bottom plate

To take this laptop apart, you need to undo all 9 Phillips-head screws. The three on the back remain attached and lift the panel so that you can start the prying process from there.


2. Battery, memory, and storage

There are two battery options – a 3-cell 40Wh unit, and a 4-cell 53Wh pack. Unfortunately, we got the smaller one. However, we were surprised to see that there are two RAM SODIMM slots for memory upgrades. According to Dell, it supports 16GB of DDR4 RAM in dual-channel mode. As for the storage, there is one M.2 NVMe slot.


3. Cooling system

In terms of cooling, you get one heat pipe, a very small heat spreader, and a fan. Also, there is a cooling bracket placed just above the CPU.
