1. Remove the bottom plate

To get inside this notebook, you need to undo 9 Phillips-head screws. Two of them are captive, and lift the two top corners of the bottom panel. This allows you to easily open the panel with a plastic tool.

2. Battery

Our device came with the smaller 56Wh package. It lasts for 7 hours of Web browsing or 6 hours of video playback. To get the battery out, you have to undo 5 Phillips-head screws. Then, unplug the connector from the motherboard and lift it away.

3. Memory and storage

Here, you get 8GB of DDR5 RAM soldered, while a single SODIMM slot allows you to expand the memory to up to 40GB. Storage-wise, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot with Gen 4 SSD support.

4. Cooling system

The cooling comprises a total of three heat pipes, three heat sinks, and two fans. Thankfully, the VRMs and the graphics memory have heat spreaders on top.

If you at all want to consider using this for gaming, make sure you buy a laptop cooler. This offers a pretty decent bang for the buck, but it runs extremely hot – especially if you’re trying to run a AAA title or utilize the RTX features.
