Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop Disassembly, HDD, RAM, SSD Upgrade Options

Xiaomi officially released the Mi gaming laptop at the new product conference on March 27, which is also the first gaming product of Xiaomi. The Mi gaming laptop does not follow the conservative tradition in appearance and keyboard but has its own design style. At the same time, it in the radical setting of heat dissipation also made us curious about the heat dissipation of the laptop, and we wanted to see how far the heat dissipation performance of this product could be reached.

Xiaomi repeatedly stressed its superior cooling capabilities at the press conference. Through the real machine, we saw the efforts made by Xiaomi in heat dissipation. The Mi gaming laptop has four air outlets, while the general gaming laptop only two. In addition to the traditional rear dual air outlets, the left and right sides of the fuselage also have outlets.

To detach the bottom plate, you have to remove all the screws on the bottom and don’t forget the one hiding under the rubber cap in the middle.
Under the button cover, you can access most of the internal components.
The laptop comes with tow 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM from Samsung. It also has other versions with an 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM.

There is a vertical M.2 port on the right side of the M.2 SSD, but this position conflicts with the following 2.5-inch hard disk drive (when the SSD is installed, it will hit the HDD cable).

Fortunately, the Mi gaming laptop is a combination of SSD + HDD, and the SSD’s capacity is sufficient (except for the top version is 256GB, the remaining three versions are 128GB), basically, do not need to upgrade.
