1. Remove the bottom plate
To get inside this notebook, you have to undo 8 Phillips-head screws. Ultimately, this is an easy job to do, and prying the bottom panel is not harder at all.
In terms of power away from the grid, there is a 71Wh unit.
3. Memory and storage
Memory-wise, there are two RAM SODIMM slots, which work in dual-channel mode and we are pretty confident that they can hold 64GB of DDR4 RAM in total. As far as the storage is concerned, there are two M.2 NVMe slots, both of which support PCIe x4 drives as well as Optane drives.
4. Cooling system
Lastly, there is the cooling solution. It comprises two heat pipes shared between the CPU and the GPU. Additionally, you’ll find a third one with a smaller diameter, attached only to the GPU, and heading to its own tiny heat sink. And as you can see, all of the VRMs and graphics memory modules are hidden beneath a heat spreader, so there should be no overheating problems with them, whatsoever.
