If I know it well the ssd is built-in. You may try to find a youtube video about replacing it probably, but not really sure.

When running the installer, or whilst running it 'live', look for anything of that size.

Try
Code:
df -h
or
Code:
sudo fdisk -l
in a terminal, or
Code:
dmesg | less
.

Why do you care ?. That is like asking where the ECU is in your car engine bay.

it looks like. You won't be able to replace that built-in SSD, but probably you can replace the hdd (and use an ssd instead)

Yes, I believe they are hard soldered to the motherboard - laptops aren't user friendly if you want to do more than add extra ram or swap hard drives.

Well what do you expect from a crap 150 dollar machine?

And it is not like it is known beforehand

Soldered RAM = very bad
soldered SSD alike Harddrive. = very bad => now it looks like a chromebook with just windows intalled.
intel gpu = very very bad.
Lenovo = very problematic (I had a 3 year old machine for a repair attempt after a few others had it, was unfixable)

the hardware looks more like a chromebook from a manufacturing standpoint.

depends on what you buy.

I bought an used ivybridge 2 years ago. Ivybridge was the last platform where everything was socketed for most of the notebooks.
These days you have to get some clevo with desktop cpus, but these are far too expensive. AMD hardly exists in the notebook area anymore.

Always check before for a teardown of a new machine, or a notebookcheck test so you see what is soldered and what can be exchanged. I'd net recommend computers with soldered RAM, HDD and such.
