1. Remove the bottom plate

To get access to this notebook’s internals, you need to undo a total of 9 Torx-head screws. After that, pry the bottom panel. We found it easiest to start from the front corners.

2. Remove the battery

Here, we find a 70Wh battery pack. It lasts for 8 hours of Web browsing, or 7 hours of video playback. To take it out, you will need to unplug the battery connector from the motherboard and undo all 5 screws that keep it attached. This time, they are of Phillips type.

3. Upgrade memory and storage

Underneath a metal shroud, you will find the single SODIMM slot. There are 16GB soldered to the motherboard, and you can put up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM in the slot. The single M.2 PCIe x4 Gen 4 storage slot is hidden beneath a metal bracket. There are three screws that you need to undo before you can access it.

4. Cooling system

The cooling comprises two heat pipes, three heat sinks, and two reasonably-sized fans. In addition, the VRMs and the graphics memory all come with metal heat spreaders on top.
