1. Remove the bottom plate
To take the bottom panel away, you need to undo only 5 captive Phillips-head screws. After that, pry the panel with a plastic tool.
Battery-wise, the laptop features a 45Wh unit.
3. Memory and storage
What is more important is upgradeability. Here, we see two RAM SODIMM slots that support 32GB of DDR4 memory in dual-channel, working at 3200 MHz. Also, there are two M.2 PCIe slots for storage.
4. Cooling system
This device’s cooling solution includes a single beefy heat pipe, a decently-sized heat sink, and a fan.
