1. Remove the bottom plate
To get inside this notebook, you need to undo 8 captive Phillips-head screws. Then, pry the bottom panel starting from the front corners.
Once inside, you can see the battery. We have the larger 58Wh option, which lasted us for 12 hours of Web browsing, or nearly 10 hours of video playback. Before you continue, unplug the battery connector from the motherboard. Then, undo all three captive Phillips-head screws, if you want to remove the battery itself.
3. Memory and storage
This device has two RAM SODIMM slots. They support up to 64GB of DDR5 memory in total and work in dual-channel mode. Storage-wise, there are two M.2 PCIe x4 slots. The slot located next to the fan supports Gen 4 drives.
4. Cooling system
Speaking of which, the cooling comprises two heat pipes, a single heat sink, and a fan. Also, the graphics memory sports a heat spreader.
