Inside Acer TravelMate B1 (B114-21) – disassembly and upgrade options

Acer TravelMate B1 (B114-21) offers you a Windows 10 S experience at a very affordable price. Even though we weren’t really touched by the OS, you can see how does the laptop look on the inside.

1. Service lid, memory, and storage

In terms of upgradability, there is a service lid, found on the bottom panel of the device, which should accelerate the process by quite a lot. Underneath it, you’ll find a 2.5″ SATA drive bay, an M.2 2280 slot that supports PCIe x2 drives and a single RAM SODIMM slot.


2. Battery and bottom plate

In order to continue, you need to remove all the screws you see and then unplug the battery. Interestingly, it stays attached to the bottom plate, while the rest of the hardware is attached to the base. Here, we are talking about a 51.5Wh solution, which should deliver a decent battery life, given the low-voltage hardware.


3. Cooling system

Lastly, on the image below, you’ll see the cooling solution, which comprises a heat dissipation bracket placed on top of the CPU. Interestingly, there is a fan that only spins the air around the notebook, without cooling the bracket directly.

Hi. Is the screw into the pre installed M.2 standoff the standard size?
