Inside Dell Latitude 15 7530 – disassembly and upgrade options

To be frank, we were not very impressed by what we saw on the inside of this laptop. Neither the cooling is great, nor do you get a ton of upgrade options.

1. Remove the bottom plate

To access this notebook’s internals, you need to undo 8 captive Phillips-head screws. Then, pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool and lift it away from the chassis.


2. Battery

Battery-wise, there are two options. We got the bigger one, which has a capacity of 58Wh. It lasts for 10 hours and 30 minutes of Web browsing, or more than 7 hours of video playback. To take it out, just unplug the connector from the motherboard, and undo the three Phillips-head screws securing it in place.


3. Memory and storage

Interestingly, the U15 version of the laptop comes with DDR4 RAM, while the P28 model features LPDDR5 memory. Nevertheless, both options can be configured with a maximum of 32GB. Storage-wise, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot, which supports Gen 4 drives.


4. Cooling system

The cooling here features a single heat pipe, which has an incredibly slim profile. It connects to a side-mounted heat sink, where the fan blows the heat away from the device.

It offers you a surprisingly big customization choice, while still remaining largely dull in terms of other features (more on that later). So what can you choose from? Well, you can pick between the 15W and 28W processors from Intel's almighty Alder Lake architecture. What is more interesting is that Dell actually offers different series for either option. Even the measurements of the laptops are different. Good news! There is no TN option o[...]
