One of the best gaming laptops in terms of value is actually a pretty easy unit to disassemble. Take a look.
1. Remove the bottom plate
If you’ve seen our TUF A17 disassembly, then you’d pretty much know how to disassemble the 15-inch version as well. There are 11 Phillips-head screws, one of which remains attached to the panel after you undo it. Thoughtfully, it slightly lifts the bottom panel from the chassis, making it easy to pry it up.
And in terms of the battery, you get two options – a 48Wh and a 90Wh unit.
3. Memory and storage
As for the upgradability, there are two RAM SODIMM slots, working in dual-channel. They support up to 32GB of DDR4 memory working at 3200 MHz. Not bad. Storage-wise there is one M.2 NVMe slot and a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay.
4. Cooling system
Now that we’re inside, let’s take a quick look at the cooling solution. Our model is equipped with the Ryzen 7 4800H and the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti. Interestingly, there are only two heat pipes, one of which is shared between the CPU and the GPU. Additionally, there are two fans and two heat sinks with a relatively small size for a gaming device.
