In this article, we will disassemble a Lenovo ThinkPad T14s, we will remove the bottom case, and then access RAM, M.2 SSD, wireless network card, and other components.

This time we disassembled the ThinkPad T14s Ryzen Edition. The Intel Edition is basically the same as the Ryzen Edition. This laptop is equipped with a Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U processor, 16GB RAM, and 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD.

Place the bottom case of the laptop facing up. The bottom case of Lenovo ThinkPad T14s is made of aluminum-magnesium alloy. There are many fan inlets on the bottom case, and there are also several small holes, which should be used to connect the docking station.

Loosen all the screws fixing the bottom cover, and then use an old credit card or thin plastic tool to slowly pry open the bottom cover

After removing the bottom cover, you can see most of the internal components, including SSD, wireless network card, fan and heat sink, speakers, battery, and motherboard.

The cooling module of ThinkPad T14s consists of a fan and a heat pipe. For a thin and light business laptop, this heat dissipation configuration is sufficient.

This laptop has 16GB of memory on board, and no spare memory slots are reserved, so the memory cannot be upgraded. In addition, all IO ports of ThinkPad T14s are reinforced with alloy plates to ensure that the ports will not loosen.

It comes with a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 57Wh. The battery life with the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U is quite worth looking forward to.

The SSD model is Western Digital SN730 which supporting Nvme protocol.

In AS SSD Benchmark, the continuous read speed is 2229.05 MB/s, the continuous write speed is 1164.27 MB/s, and the random read and write speeds are 42.44 MB/s and 130 MB/s respectively.

In CrystalDiskMark, the measured continuous read and write speeds are 2861 MB/s and 2699 MB/s, and the random read and write speeds are 38.9 MB/s and 84.03 MB/s.
