This laptop has two things that it can upgrade:
- Wi-Fi module: 802.11AC RealTek RTL8822CE (NGFF M.2 2230)
- open M.2 2242 slot for SSD

Note: Unfortunately, RAM does not seem upgradeable, soldered onto motherboard

SSD Upgrade:
This laptop has a single M.2 2242 slot that you can install a good SSD to get a significant increase in performance for daily usage as compared to the crappy eMMC.

Recommendation to get best performance:
Since the system (Windows OS) is slowest running on the crappy on-board 64GB eMMC, I would highly recommend to clean install Win10 via bootable USB to the new SSD and wipe the 64GB on-board drive,
- or if you do not want to do that:
---- download and install something like Mini Partition Wizard on the laptop, and copy/migrate the entire on-board 64GB storage to the new SSD which will copy everything (including Windows and recover partitions).
---- then go into the BIOS/UEFI settings and set the new SSD as the first boot device. And you can now wipe/format the crappy 64GB eMMC and use it as free storage for whatever.

Done.

I tried several of the Lenovo 300e options in the Chrome OS recovery utility and ensured the laptop would boot from the USB drive but it would always just boot back into Windows (presumably because the boot drive isn't compatible).

Figured it out... there is an option for "Chrome OS Flex" in the drop-down menu when choosing which manufacturer's Chromebook to create a recovery disk for.

When using a laptop with 4GB of RAM or less with a modern OS, enabling RAM compression will make the laptop more usable.

On Windows 10/11, RAM compression is on by default if you enable swap (you'll see this in the Task Manager's Performance > Memory section). However, AFAIK, the Windows implementation requires storage backing and will periodically swap to disk (which is when you notice slowdowns the most).

On Linux, enable ZRAM swap with ZSTD compression (fast with a 1:3 - 1:5 ratio). The Linux implementation works much better than Windows. ZRAM swap does not need storage backing & will avoid slow swapping to disk. However, if you want, you can have a additional swap file on disk. Just set the ZRAM swap priority to 32767 so that it is used first. I recommend you set the size equal to 1.5 times your physical RAM. On a 4GB system this would be 6GB and you will get an effective ~8GB of RAM (2GB uncompressed + 6GB compressed).
Looked up performance of the processor. Geekbench 5 is 528/974 vs Celeron N4020 of 423/743 (single/multi-core)
oooooo, very tempting spare laptop, has a m.2 slot to upgrade to proper SSD rather than using the crap eMMC.

Here are pics of the motherboard for this specific Lenovo laptop with AMD 3015e:



Accessiblitiy looks identical to the 300e Intel version, just need to open the bottom:


Must not buy things I dont need tho.... LMAO

Thanks! I purchased the Model 82GK001VUS, which includes the Lenovo Active Pen. The one listed is Model 82GK001UUS. The only difference is the pen.

This is a better buy for me over the most recent Chromebook variants at $100 and $150..

I wonder if I can swap this Pro license and use it on my other Lenovo laptop and move that Home license to this one.

Anyone know of a good key finder software? It's been a long time since I last pulled any OEM product keys from systems.
