Inside Lenovo V15 – disassembly and upgrade options

Budget build quality, budget graphics solution and a design that is shared with the Lenovo V155 (15). How does it manage its internals, however? Let’s see!

1. Remove the bottom plate

If you want to dig inside this notebook, you first need to remove 10 Phillips-head screws. After you do that, start prying from the edges with a plastic pry tool and you should easily be able to remove the panel from the chassis.


2. Battery

Battery-wise, there are two options, a 30Wh one, and a 35Wh model. Our unit was equipped with the larger (although still small for a 15-inch notebook).


3. Memory and storage

In terms of memory, there is only one RAM SODIMM slot. It supports only up to 8GB of memory (according to Lenovo) and with the optional 4GB of soldered RAM, it totals up for 12GB. As of the storage, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot, as well as one 2.5″ SATA drive bay.


4. Cooling system

In order to cool down both the CPU and the GPU, this device uses a single but yet thick heat pipe. It drives away the heat from both chips and sends it to the heat spreader, which is then helped by the fan. Given the fact that both processors use a low-voltage design, we think that a single heat pipe should be enough.
