Acer Aspire 8935G-874G100BN laptop disassembly

Update (2010-04-22): I've also disassembled the screen.

I've disassembled my laptop a while ago. The CPU core temperature was pretty high, sometimes above 85 celsius. After disassembling and dusting it the temperature dropped by 20 celsius so the operation was a huge success. High temperature has many side effects like decreased durability, increased power consumption, lower performance and who knows what else.

If you decide to disassemble your laptop then I can promise you few things. First, you'll be challenged as laptops are very highly integrated and if you're coming from the PC world you'll quickly realize that it's a completely different ballgame. Second, it's pretty likely that you'll appreciate your laptop more as you'll be able to see the vast scale of integration and all its components.

As for me, I'm absolutely fascinated by the internal design of laptops. I think these gadgets truly symbolize the level of technological advancedment that humanity has reached so far.

I originally wanted to detail the whole disassembly process but I've realized that it'd take too much of my time. Despite of this I hope that you'll enjoy the show. Let's get some popcorn and let the ultimate geek porn begin.

Hello!

Mi a helyzet veled!
Te mindent szétszedsz mostanában!A ventilátort nem ártott volna lefogni nehogy túlpörögjön!

Üdv

Szia Huba!

Na igen, mostanság többet foglalkozok a hardverekkel, és nem csak szétszedéssel hanem tervezéssel is. A ventillátort valóban bölcs dolog lett volna lefogni de szerencsémre semmi baja nem történt.
