Dell Vostro 14 5459 definitely is simple and easy to open. In absence of prying tool you can use even disposable plastic knife. Spent 15 minutes to disassemble, change HDD drive to SSD drive and assemble it back. Memory upgrade is easy as well - carefully peel off plastic sheet above RAM module and replace the RAM. Seems particular cooler design is not very prone to collect dust inside too so easier cleaning as well. If middle screw on assembly doesn’t stick in thread, slightly press keyboard in area where keys G,H,J are and try to screw the screw in again. For maintenance and upgrade for this laptop I give 4/5.
