1. Remove the bottom plate

To take this laptop apart, you need to undo 7 Phillips-head screws. Two of them are captive, and help you with the prying process. After you are done, lift the bottom panel from the chassis.


2. Battery

Inside, we see a 54Wh battery pack. Dell also sells the notebook with a 41Wh unit. Nevertheless, our device managed more than 12 hours of Web browsing or nearly 11 hours of video playback. To take the battery out of the device, you first need to unplug the battery connector. Then, undo all 5 Phillips-head screws, holding it in place.
