Inside ASUS VivoBook S14 S433 – disassembly and upgrade options

ASUS has tried its best to improve the design of this notebook. However, they have ditched some neat features like the ErgoLift hinge, and especially the ScreenPad 2.0, probably in order to keep the price down.

Check out all ASUS VivoBook S14 S433 prices and configurations in our Specs System or read more in our In-Depth review.


1. Remove the bottom plate

This device’s bottom plate is fixed in place by 9 Torx-head screws. Remove them and you would be able to pop the panel with a plastic pry tool.


2. Battery

Here, the battery is decent for a device with this size – a 50Wh unit.


3. Memory and storage

In terms of upgradability, there is nothing much to say – all of the memory is soldered to the motherboard, and the only storage option is an M.2 PCIe x2 drive.


4. Cooling system

Let’s take a look at the cooling. It has pretty much the same design as the older VivoBook S14 S432 – a thin but yet long heat pipe, and a reasonably big heat sink to dissipate the heat.
