Inside Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 – disassembly and upgrade options

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 has two versions – the Carbon, which is the small, thin and light machine, you can take everywhere, and the Extreme Edition, which is also thin and light, for its footprint, but also packs a lot more power with a dedicated GPU and H-series processors.

1. Remove the bottom plate

While ThinkPads, in general, are very easy to disassemble, this particular model is even more hassle-less. You got 7 Phillips-head screws to remove, and after that, you need to pry the bottom plate from the backside. Then you can simply slide it and it will come out right away.

2. Battery

One of the best features of this machine is its 80Wh battery pack. It is one of the biggest we’ve seen lately. If you want to change anything in this notebook, first, you should disconnect the battery plug from the motherboard. Should you want to remove the battery, itself, you have to unscrew 4 Phillips-head suckers.

3. Memory and storage

In terms of upgradability, we have a very solid set up here. Apple, take notes, please. There are two RAM DIMMs that support up to 64GB of DDR4 memory. Additionally, there is a duo of M.2 drive slots, both of which fit PCIe x4 drives and moreover, support RAID 0 configuration.

4. Cooling system

The cooling on this notebook consists of two heat pipes that have roughly the same diameter and length. They drive the heat away from both the CPU and the GPU to two fans, placed on either side of the machine.
