I repair and upgrade most laptops

Laptops / notebooks in general are quite limited in the upgrade area especially when the CPU and the GPU is involved. They are soldered to the MB and rarely  if ever upgradable.  However there are certain upgrades worth considering if the machine is 'high end'. This usually just requires more internal disk space or a memory upgrade. In most cases this can be quite easily merely because there is easy rear access. HUMPH!

New machines make it quite difficult to access the HDD and RAM compartments requiring a disassembly of the whole machine for what is really a should be a simple job!

This means taking the whole of the rear panel off which can be quite entertaining. All models are different. Sometimes the screw lenths can be of 3 different types and it is most IMPORTANT that they are replaced exactly as extracted. One quite irritating factor to take into account is that some machines require the keyboard is taken out to facilitate the screw that locks the DVD drive for instance or the 2 that 'pulls' the top case to the base. 'irritatating' is merely a politeness here.

Also another 'irritating' factor to take into account is that in most new machines the battery is internally fitted. I have never understood that concept other than making the machine more streamlined and slimmer. I question a safety problem however.

In the good old days if you needed an upgrade on a lappy it would merely be RAM or the HDD ther were easy access via one or two panels on the rear. 2-3 screws, access, do the job....and job done!
