Inside Toshiba Satellite S50-B – disassembly, internal photos and upgrade options

Another Toshiba notebook is on our list of upcoming reviews, but before that we will take a closer look at what the notebook has to offer on the inside, but unfortunately it’s not much.

You can check the price and availability of the notebook here: http://amzn.to/1j7p0CN

1. Removing the bottom cover

You need to remove all the screws and especially the ones that keep the battery in place. Once you’ve disconnected the battery, be careful with the bottom piece as it’s quite fragile and easy to scratch. The first thing you’ll notice is the strange thermal design. There’s only one fan taking care of the heat from the CPU and GPU, which are connected with a single heat pipe spanning across almost the whole chassis. We hope that this will not affect the cooling capabilities in a bad way.

The battery is rated at 45Wh (2800 mAh) and it’s manufactured by Toshiba.

2. Upgrade options

Just like most of the notebooks at this price range, the Satellite S50-B doesn’t provide M.2 SSD slot and there’s no optical drive for you to swap with a 2.5-inch storage device. So you have to manage only with the 2.5-inch HDD or SSD with which the notebook came with. In our case, it’s 1TB HDD, Toshiba-made.

You will also be able to upgrade your RAM since there are two slots with only one of them being occupied by a 8GB chip made by Samsung.

or maybe to keep away heat from right hand (use mouse) but still it’s a strange design, toshiba is too lazy to redesign internal componen placement
