Quite honestly, the ZenBook Flip 14 UX463 is one of our favorite 2-in-1 laptops of 2019/2020. It boasts great performance, a punchy screen, and some additional features.
1. Remove the bottom plate
If you want to take the laptop apart, naturally the first thing you need to do is to remove the bottom plate. It is held in place by 9 Torx-head screws and two Phillips-head ones – hidden beneath the back rubber feet. To remove the feet, you need a plastic pry tool and some bravery. Keep in mind that the glue is rather strong and you would need to use some force.
Battery-wise we are talking about a 50Wh unit. Essentially, this is the first thing you need to unplug after you open your laptop up.
3. Memory and storage
Sadly, you won’t be able to upgrade the memory on your notebook, as it is all soldered to the motherboard. Thankfully, though, there is one M.2 slot for storage expansion and it supports PCIe x4 drives. Additionally, this device has Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 support.
4. Cooling system
After you have removed the bottom panel, you can take a closer look at the cooling solution. It uses only one, yet pretty bulky heat pipe to cool down both the CPU and the GPU.
