1. Remove the bottom plate

This notebook’s bottom panel is held in place by 7 Phillips-head screws. After you undo them, pry the panel with a plastic tool, and lift it away from the chassis.

2. Remove the battery

Here, the 52.5Wh battery lasts for 11 hours and 30 minutes of Web browsing, or 9 hours of video playback. To take it out, you need to undo four Phillips-head screws. Before you do that, unplug the connector from the motherboard.
