Even though Dynabook is in the middle of a transition, it still produces business-oriented notebooks. This one, in particular, happened to be a pretty decent one. Additionally, it is one of the few models out there that still feature a service lid.
1. One with a service lid
Only one screw (Phillips-head type) that separates you from the two RAM SODIMM slots. They support up to 32GB of DDR4 memory.
2. Remove the bottom plate
In order to access the rest of the internals, you need to remove the bottom panel. For that, you have to unscrew further 9 Phillips-head screws. Then, pop the plate with a plastic tool, and it should fall off fairly easily.
We are a little disappointed with the battery size, though. Toshiba-Dynabook has put a 38Wh unit. Keep in mind that it is a good idea to remove the battery connector before you proceed with removing things out of the laptop.
As of the storage, there is one M.2 slot that supports NVMe drives, as well as one 2.5″ SATA drive bay.
5. Cooling system
The heat pipe on this thing is not too big. In fact, it is pretty slim, compared even to some ultrabooks. However, the device remains very quiet even during full load, so you won’t be bothered when you are in a meeting.
