Inside Lenovo V15 (G1 IML) – disassembly and upgrade options
The Lenovo V15 (G1 IML) is a pretty budget-conscious little notebook. One of its strong points is definitely the upgradability.
1. Remove the bottom plate
This laptop’s bottom panel is held in place by 10 Phillips-head screws. After you undo them, pry the panel and remove it from the chassis.
Here, we have a rather small battery with a capacity of 35Wh.
3. Мemory and storage
In terms of memory, you get 4GB soldered to the motherboard, as well as one SODIMM slot for further expansion. Storage-wise, the laptop sports one M.2 PCIe x4 slot. In addition to that, there is a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay. Unfortunately, there are no mounting and connecting accessories inside the box.
4. Cooling system
Lastly, there is the cooling. It’s pretty simple and comprises a thin heat pipe. Respectively, both the heat sink and the fan are of average size.
