Inside Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Gen 2 – disassembly, internal photos and upgrade options

No service hatches, which means that the bottom plate should be removed in order to access the internals.

1. Removing the bottom piece

It’s really easy – remove all the screws around the bottom and pry it up. This will reveal everything you’d need to upgrade or clean.


2. Storage

Although the laptop supports M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs, the unit we received was equipped with a SanDisk X400 2280 SSD running on the SATA III interface.


3. Memory, battery and Wi-Fi

Surprisingly, the 13-incher sports two RAM slots but only one of them was taken with 8GB of DDR4-2133 chip.

The Wi-Fi module located next to the RAM slots – Intel 8265NGW.

The laptop features relatively big 42Wh battery.


4. Cooling system

The cooling system is simple and consists of a single heat pipe connecting the heat sink to the cooling fan.

Thanks for helping get me started! I’d like to note that there are 3 screws under the small rubber pads at the bottom and you should be able to open the first few clips with a spludger, after that it should just peel right off without breaking clips.
