Here's the hardware maintenance manual:

https://cdn.cnetcontent.com/b2/5e...6cc57d.pdf

Quick search suggests maybe storage can be upgraded, but terms around RAM are ambiguous: i.e., refers to a memory "Slot: Onboard x 1", but also "Capacity: 4GB max".
I didn't see an SODIMM slot in the MB diagrams, though, which hints at soldered.

Can anyone confirm or correct via direct experience? If both can be upgraded, I'm in for two.
TIA.

For laptops like this which include "Windows 10 Home in S Mode", can you easily switch it out to just regular Windows 10 Home for free?
Or are you stuck with S mode?
Would there be any serious performance concerns with doing so?

I apologize if this is a dumb question, It's been years since I've used Windows and have very little experience with Windows 10 (none w/ S mode).
We have third-party software that we would need to install that is not available on the Windows store so need non-S mode.

Bought this a couple weeks ago when it was $129.99. It's a sweet little laptop especially for traveling! Handles mostly anything in business computing and web surfing with ease. Remarkable performance for a modern Celeron processor...just don't expect it to multitask a bunch of open apps although no problem having 6-7+ browser tabs open Smilie

BTW, unlike it's predecessor model, the 120S, this 130S model can NOT take a M.2 SSD upgrade because Lenovo no longer puts a M.2 socket on the motherboard. There is a space for it and the blank solder connections for one but no socket...either cost saving measure and/or spite decision on Lenovo's part... Confused
