1. Service panels and battery
Here, we can notice something very rare these days. This device has service panels, meaning you don’t need to remove the entire bottom panel, to upgrade your internals. First, you would want to remove the 50Wh battery, which is as easy as unlocking it using the switches and just popping it out. Then, there are the two aforementioned service panels, which hold the M.2 NVMe drive and the two RAM SODIMM slots. By the way, this notebook supports up to 64GB of DDR4 memory.
2. Remove the bottom panel
This is pretty much it. However, if you’d like to reach the Wi-Fi card, or change your thermal paste, you would need to remove around 17 Phillips-head screws. Once you do it, taking off the
bottom panel should be as easy, as poking it with a plastic pry tool and making your way around the device.
4. Cooling system
Inside, you’ll see that the cooling solution is extremely small – the fan, the heat sink, and the heat pipe are miniaturized, compared to other machines in this class.
