Dell Precision 14 5470 review – the most compact workstation on the market right now

Disassembly, Upgrade options, and Maintenance

To access this device’s internals, you need to undo 8 Torx-head screws. Then, carefully pry your way around the laptop with a plastic tool. It’s best to start from the front corners.

Inside, we meet a 72Wh battery pack. To remove it, unplug the battery connector, and undo the 5 Phillips-head screws that hold the battery to the chassis.

This device comes in configurations from 8 to 64GB of LPDDR5 RAM, soldered to the motherboard. It works at 5200MHz. As for the storage, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot, which supports Gen 4 SSDs.

Two heat pipes cool both the CPU and the GPU. They are connected to two heat sinks, where two reasonably-sized fans blow the heat away. In addition, you get a couple of heat spreaders, that take care of the graphics memory and the VRMs.
