Inside Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (15) – disassembly and upgrade options

The Ideapad Flex 5 (15) has a big potential, but the execution is a bit underwhelming.

Check out all Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (15) prices and configurations in our Specs System or read more in our In-Depth review.


1. Remove the bottom plate

This device’s bottom panel is held in place by 9 Torx-head screws. As the saying goes, after undoing them, you need to pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool.


2. Battery

Battery-wise there is a 52.5Wh unit.


3. Memory and storage

On the downside, the RAM modules are soldered to the motherboard, so there are no upgrades possible in this aspect. The maximum capacity you can get is 16GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory. However, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot for fast storage.


4. Cooling system

Since our unit is not equipped with a discrete GPU, there is only one heat pipe, which is relatively thin. Thankfully, the area of the heat sink is quite big, so cooling should not be a problem here.
