Inside Lenovo Ideapad 730S (Yoga S730) – disassembly and upgrade options

Now that’s what a truly thin device should look like. Honestly, this is one of the first devices we test that justifies the lack of USB Type-A ports. Additionally, in our review, we saw that the keyboard actually has a decent key travel, longer than many bigger laptops. Now the question is – what would that mean for the internal chamber and the artifacts inside.

1. Remove the bottom plate

On this device, the bottom plate is held in place by 9 Torx-head screws. After you remove them, you are left with a couple of clips to undo, which by the way happens very easy, since most of the mounting pressure is provided by the screws themselves.

2. Battery

While 42Wh is not a huge capacity at all, we are impressed how Lenovo was able to put it inside of this tight chassis. Despite the huge footprint, the battery itself is barely a couple of millimeters thin, so it can fit properly. It is held in place by two Phillips-head screws.

3. Memory and storage

Expectedly, there is not much to be seen on the memory side. Mostly, due to the bulkiness of the orthodox RAM DIMMs, here you won’t find any. Instead, the RAM chips are soldered directly onto the motherboard, making the choice of a device even harder. However, what is impressive here is that you can still upgrade your M.2 PCIe SSD.

4. Cooling system

Here is the most interesting part of this article. How do they cool a 12 mm thick laptop? Well, apparently they use a super tiny fan and a wide but at the same time super-thin heat pipe. However, that’s not all. As you can see from the image below, there is another heat pipe, which leads to… nowhere. Yep, exactly as you see it. It just stops there and dissipates the heat into the body. It should be fairly easy to take apart as well, as all of the four screws are visible (plus there is one on the right of the fan).
