Inside Lenovo Ideapad Gaming 3i (15) – disassembly and upgrade options

Let’s see what you will find inside the budget-grade gaming notebook from Lenovo – the Ideapad Gaming 3i (15).

1. Remove the bottom plate

Getting inside of this machine is certainly not very difficult. After you undo all of the 10 Phillips-head screws, you need to pry the bottom panel away with a plastic tool. That’s it.

2. Battery

In terms of battery, you will get a 45Wh unit.

3. Memory and storage

Now, let’s take a look at the upgradability. The Ideapad Gaming 3i (15) supports dual-channel memory via its two RAM SODIMM slots. Lenovo states that there are configurations equipped with up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, but we are pretty positive it can work with 32GB in total. Storage-wise, there is a single 2.5-inch SATA drive bay (additional screws and ribbon cable are found inside the packaging), and an M.2 PCIe x4 drive slot. Furthermore, there is one M.2 slot, which can also be used for storage, but you have to give away the 2.5-inch drive.

4. Cooling system

Despite bearing a lot of similarities to last year’s model, we see that the cooling has gone through some change. Now, the heat pipes are equal in size and one of them goes all the way around the fans to attach to a separate tiny heat sink. Additionally, from the visual perspective, the fans housings are now painted black, which doesn’t make them perform better, but certainly gives Lenovo some points for looks.
