How to upgrade RAM, harddrive or chance battery for Lenovo S21e-20?
Hello ladies & gentlenerds,
I bought my Lenovo S21e-20 because, among other things, it features non-glare display and was very affordable. I later found out, that it is not designed to be upgraded ever with additional ram or a bigger hard drive. I know, on this price level one cannot expect a device, which is easy to upgrade. But still, I want to try this.
There is no service opening but you can remove the keyboard by removing the srews on the bottom of the casing and then it is possible to remove the screws underneath the keyboard. I did this in order to open the casing but I could not open it completly without using force. There seemed to be clamps on the backside next to the screen, but I could not rech them. So I was not able to see, wether or not the RAM and harddrive is soldered or removable but I could identify the battery, which is L14M4P22 and seemed to be removable. This battery model can be ordered online, so assume, there must be a way to open the casing (unlesss this battery is used for other easier to service lenovo models as well, which I doupt.)
So to anybody who found out how to upgrade this thing, please help me. It would be so good to do the impossible. Tank you.

Thank you, jayeff. According to this manual, you can only change the mini WLAN card and the battery.

Thank you, to be honest I didnt think of using a micro SD for regular storing. I just read that there are very different sizes and speed classes. So I think I will find something apropriate.
The micro SDs are faster than USB (2.0 and 3.0) pen drives, arent they?
These gadgets are really small. I would use one of these.
"It’s faster to read various small files from your USB stick than it is to read them from your hard drive"
Is that so?
So with my 2 GB of RAM installed and having Win 10, which I use for surfing and movies mainly, is it worth a try? Because I would have to buy a stick. I have one here, but it is really old. I found out, that at times nearly 100% of my RAM are in use. Up to 1,9 of 2 when I use youtube for a longer period of time. So would it be wise to try ready boost here? Until now I didnt have the feeling, that RAM is at it's limit.

It looks the HDD is part of the mother board. https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mob...
