Google is your friend:

Also I think that means it won't fit the mini ITX case from your other post.

What I'm looking for is to see if I can plug a full size power supply into it.

Can you guys confirm if I am blind or what?

Are those actually a laptop RAM module?

> It doesn't have an ATX connector, you can't plug in a PSU sorry. It's a totally custom motherboard design.
> Those are notebook SO-DIMM DDR3 modules, yes.
> WiFi is the mini-PCIe card.

Not sure why you'd buy one just to take everything out versus buying separately?

Yes MarshallR a video would be nice how to take a part the unit, my 11 year old daughter is asking for the same , I bought an other G20 for her so she can take it to friends to play games , the first unit had many problems, shes a little techie wants to know how things work and why then rebuild it lol. thanks in advance. My 11 year old only negative comment was the 2 power supplies, she thought they could be smaller or more compact , as they are very big for her to carry around in her backpack . she thinks the power supplies are not well thought out. to big

Yes, it has 2 SO-DIMM slots - hence unfortunately the current 16GB RAM max.

Your 11 year old daugher is asking for a take-a-part video?? That's funny - she must *really* be a young techie :)

Now I have a G20AJ I will do one in early March. I'll ask for the service manual first then I'll have the 'official way' ;)

For your daughter I would recommend a GR8 tbh. It's a fraction of the size and weight.

It's first and foremost a gaming PC, not workstation replacement tbh.

MarshallR daughter and I picked up a Gr8 today shes much happier with the weight of the Gr8 fits perfectly in backpack even the key board . thanks for your advice. now shes watching Asus Gr8 videos , her most comments on the Gr8 was the sound , she said Gr8 sounds better than the G20 with head phones or speakers . she wont let me play with it yet.. but she has screw driver in hand lol The store where we bought the GR8 was kind enough to include a slim slot loading external BluRay drive
and shes asking what the internal USB port is for?

thanks hope to see G20 disassemble soon.
