There are real life pics here:https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-IdeaPad-330S-15IKB-i5-8250U-UHD620-Laptop-Review.332226.0.htmland it really is not bad looking and is metal construction.

I don't disagree with either comments... But don't want a generic grey/silver slab... So this ticks a box

If you consider taking the whole back off as easy, then yes, it's easy.

Take a look at page 42 of the service manual

Just need a great deal on 8gb DDR4 2400mhz ram and sell the ram out of this for £25-£30

Amazon have 8GB 1600mhz ram for £37 so if you don’t mind the slower ram the upgrade will cost just £15 after you sell the 4gb ram.

I read this regarding different between 1600/2400 MHz ram:

okay so im doing my first new build and iv been looking at the

Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 RAM

but theres two
1600MHz
and
2400MHz
what is the difference?
I do plan to upgrade to 16Gb in the future


The 2400mhz will be a tiny bit faster in games (maybe 3-4 fps or more, about 10-11 fps in some F1 games for some reason)....also, what are the CAS latencies of the ram sticks? if both 1600mhz and 2400mhz are for the same price, and have reasonable latencies (9 or below) then get the 2400mhz, keep in mind though you'd have to overclock the memory controller to use the full 2400mhz..

And someone else said “Unless you have an APU the short answer is - not much”.

I think it will be unnoticeable.
