Thanks to its high mobility, laptops are always the first choice for office workers and students. However, unlike desktops (Desktop), Laptops are difficult to upgrade hardware.
Some new laptops are specifically designed to limit users’ product disassembly. Microsoft’s Surface Pro 2 is an example, if you want to remove the internal hardware components, you have to use a hair dryer … to heat up and melt the glue around the screen first and then start working. operative “device”. But that is still not enough, the internal components are closely connected so it is difficult to replace.
Even if your laptop is easy to “operate”, the ability of the components inside is also linked together very closely and easily … confused, besides determining the correct position of the screws when Mounting is also a problem when the number of them is quite large with enough sizes.
In this case, the best way is that you should … reinstall and remove the intention to upgrade because it is not smart, you may have to regret, typically the Apple Macbook line with CPU, GPU, and RAM soldered on the motherboard.
With Desktop, usually the components will have a separate warranty for each item. This means that even if you cut the machine into small parts such as CPU, GPU, Hard Disk or Ram, they will still be under warranty. However, the warranty mechanism of the Laptop is very different; Manufacturers only accept warranty if the machine has not been dissected or removed. The warranty stamps are affixed by the manufacturer in the “center” position is in the middle of the joint of the two parts or just above the screw position, so the device assembly will not be possible if you do not want to “lose” warranty when the product is still in the warranty period.
For some laptops can be upgraded, what should gamers note?
More RAM: This is quite easy work in the suggestions for upgrading laptops. If the laptop you are using supports RAM removal, you just need to gently remove the old RAM stick and install the new RAM stick. The problem here is that you have to find the right type of RAM for your device.

Before you proceed, you should research carefully whether SSDs are suitable for laptops or not and should back up the data before proceeding.
Replace CPU and GPU: These two components are the most important and most complex in laptops and are often soldered to the motherboard, so usually if you want to upgrade these two components, people often have to replace the laptop’s mainboard including 2 chips. CPU and GPU, on the other hand, finding a higher-power mainboard that still fits in the old mainboard is not easy, it can only be taken from another machine just like a laptop that wants to upgrade but has the option when buying the device. higher configuration.
In general, the hardware upgrade for a laptop is entirely possible, but you have to learn thoroughly before performing. Some manufacturers now offer some online services to teach you how to maintain and upgrade their products. It is also advisable to consult with people who have experience in upgrading computer hardware for accurate advice and instructions.
