Lenovo Ideapad S145 15″ has a very wide target, given the fact that it can be bought with either a Pentium or a Core i7 processor.
1. Remove the bottom plate
There are 10 Phillips-head screws that you have to take out of your way to remove the bottom plate. Then, as traditionally, pry the plastic panel up by preferably using a plastic tool. Be really careful, though, because, in order to keep the price down, Lenovo has given up on build quality.
Ideapad S145 15″ packs a rather small 30Wh battery. Don’t expect a whole lot from it but Lenovo state it could last somewhere between four and five hours web browsing. We’re going to check that in our In-depth review of course. If you’d like to upgrade the laptop we would suggest disconnecting the battery plug and if you want to remove it entirely – there are three Phillips-head screws holding in place.
3. Memory and storage
On this laptop you are going to find only one RAM DIMM and the memory support depends on the processor you chose. Storage-wise there is a 2.5″ SATA slot and an M.2 slot.
4. Cooling system
The cooling solution is very simple – only a single heat pipe and a fan (and a heatsink of course).
