1. Remove the bottom plate
This laptop’s back cover is held in place by 9 Phillips-head screws. After you undo them, carefully pry the panel with a plastic tool.
Battery-wise, there’s a 42Wh unit.
3. Memory and storage
Unfortunately, the memory is soldered to the motherboard. It comes in configurations of 4, 8, or 16GB of DDR4 RAM. On the bright side, you can upgrade the storage via two M.2 PCIe x4 slots.
4. Cooling system
When it comes to the cooling, you’ll see a thin heat pipe that leads to a substantial heat spreader and a relatively large fan in diameter. However, its profile is thin, so we doubt it’ll be able to push a whole lot of air.
