Inside Lenovo Ideapad 110 – disassembly, internal photos and upgrade options

We have some great news about the successor of the Ideapad 100! The Ideapad 110 appears to be much easier to disassemble than its predecessor because it doesn’t require the keyboard to be removed. The only thing you have to do in order to access the commonly upgraded components is to just remove the bottom piece.

1. Removing the optical drive

Before you start doing anything, we suggest that you unscrew the whole bottom and then remove the optical drive. There might be a few screws hiding there so be careful. Remove them before you attempt to pry it up.

2. Detaching the bottom piece

After the optical drive has been removed, continue with the rest of the screws and pry up the bottom. It should come off easily.

3. Storage and RAM

The notebook uses 4GB of DDR3 soldered RAM so unfortunately, it can’t be upgraded.

However, the 2.5-inch HDD is easily accessible, which in our case is WD packing 1TB of storage. If you throw an SSD in there and preserve the HDD using a caddy instead of the optical drive, you will have yourself an excellent budget performer with lots of space.

4. Wi-Fi card and battery

The Wi-Fi card is located next to the big heat sink plate for the CPU. Its model number is SW10A11648.

Whereas the battery, it’s located between the screen hinges and it’s rated at 24Wh so we can’t expect any record-breaking battery runtimes.

5. Cooling system

Since the notebook is equipped with an Intel Pentium N3710 CPU, it allows for a passive (fanless) cooling system. The only thing for heat dispersion is the metal plate and thermal paste applied on the CPU.

You have to use something called a “caddy” which you can fit in the place of the dvd drive
