Inside Lenovo Ideapad 3 (14) – disassembly and upgrade options

It’s petty when manufacturers prevent you from upgrading your device, just so you can buy a new one. Thankfully, this is not the case here.

Check out all Lenovo Ideapad 3 (14) prices and configurations in our Specs System or read more in our In-Depth review.

1. Remove the bottom plate

First, there are 10 Phillips-head screws you need to remove. Then, pry the bottom panel with a guitar pick or another plastic tool, and lift the panel away. Keep in mind that both the chassis and the bottom plate are made out of plastic, so you might want to be more gentle when prying it away.

2. Battery

As of the battery – similarly to the 15-inch model, there are two options – a 35Wh and a 45Wh one, and our unit features the smaller one.

3. Memory and storage

Then, there is the memory, which consists of 4GB of soldered chips and a single SODIMM slot. According to Lenovo, the maximum amount of RAM you can get this laptop with is 12GB of DDR4, working at 2666MHz. Storage-wise, there is an M.2 PCIe x4 slot, as well as a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay.

4. Cooling system

Quite frankly, the cooling looks a bit disappointing. It employs only one heat pipe for both the CPU and the GPU. Furthermore, there is a single thin heat sink and a rather wide fan. On the bright side, the heat pipe is pretty thick.
