    Can i upgrade the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 3502 Intel celeron N4020 cpu and it’s Intel UHD Graphics 600? If yes how easy is it?

      Unfortunately, no. Processors and their integrated graphics processors aren’t upgradeable in the Inspiron 15 3000 3502 and in almost all other laptop models.

      It’s good only for light computing. If you get a 3502 model with the Pentium CPU, 8GB RAM, and SSD, you can have quite decent performance for lite tasks like work with online web-based apps or MS Office apps.

    Can you change the SSD from 256gb or 1tb easily?

    • Dan

      Yes, I would say it’s easy, since you have only to remove the bottom cover of the laptop, disconnect the battery, and remove a few additional screws. It’s easy for both the notebook’s M.2 SSD slot and the old 2.5″ HDD / SSD bay.

      The Inspiron 15 3000 3502 has a single RAM slot. The notebook’s entry-level Intel platform supports up to 8GB of RAM. If you have 4GB inside, you can replace it with an 8GB RAM module.
