On January 11, Lenovo released his ThinkPad E580, a new generation of ThinkPad products in Beijing. Compared with his predecessor, the laptop has been greatly upgraded in hardware. It has adopted Intel’s eighth-generation Core Duo processor and AMD Radeon RX 500 RX 500 graphics card, and supports M.2 2280 PCIe SSD and maximum 32GB of memory.
Today we got an E580, and we will remove the back cover to explore its extensibility.
The ThinkPad E580 is equipped with a 2.5-inch mechanical hard drive and no M.2 SSD, but we can see that it has an M.2 2280 SSD slot (with PCIe support) and also reserved the screws. If necessary, you can easily add an M.2 SSD.
The laptop can support up to 32GB of DDR4-2400 MHz memory via two RAM slots. The unit we’ve tested came with a single 8GB RAM chip.
The battery unit is rated at 45Wh with an FRU of 01AV447, and it is placed under the RAM slot rest area.
