In this guide I will be taking apart a Lenovo ThinkPad L480 (type 20LS, 20LT) business laptop. The disassembly process is pretty much straightforward except for the keyboard removal.
Here are some pros and cons of Lenovo ThinkPad L480 design I found during the disassembly process:
– All screws on the base cover are captive screws which is very convenient for in-field repairs.
– All major components are easily accessible after the base cover is removed.
– It supports a regular 2.5″ hard drive and PCIe NVMe M.2 solid state drive.
– You need a special tool to remove the keyboard (there is a workaround).
