Yes it is VERY upgradable.

Now before doing anything else unplug the charger and take out the battery!

The fixit guide for screen replacement shows how to remove the hard drive and where the RAM slots are:

The latest BIOS version is 213. What is yours?

How much RAM do you have at present? The Asus U56E maximum is 8GB (i.e. 2 x 4GB)

A SSD hard drive would make a big difference.

If you need more help just ask.

Your laptop is a “puppy” compared to the “ancient” 2005 DELL laptop I upgrade to an SSD drive, so again yes upgradable.

Here is another guide to the RAM and hard drive - you just need to go to step four:

Just three screws to open cover. You are so lucky!

Hey that's great. Well done.

Personally I would use a smaller SSD as the main drive, maybe 240GB, for the Windows operating system and get a hard drive caddy for the DVD slot. (note: different thicknesses could be 7, 9.5 or 12.7mm so make sure you get the right one)

Then put your old drive in the caddy and use it for file storage of installation files, videos, music, etc.

As for model of SSD just look at Read and Write specifications, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Look for sales.

I have the same notebook and will be looking to upgrade. Thank you for the information.
