1. Remove the bottom plate

To take this laptop apart, you need to undo a total of 9 Torx-head screws. After that, pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool, starting from the hinge gaps.

Inside, we see a 67Wh battery pack. It lasted us for 12 hours of Web browsing, or about 9 hours of video playback.

This laptop is equipped with up to 16GB of soldered memory. Thankfully, it works in quad-channel mode. As for the storage, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot.
