Dear Lifehacker, I have a laptop — it’s not too old — and I love it, but I’m thinking I could use a bigger hard drive, or maybe some more RAM. I wouldn’t mind upgrading it myself, but I don’t want to undo all of these screws just to find out the RAM is soldered down or the hard drive is under a bunch of delicate wires. How can I find out whether I can upgrade it before I crack it open?
