1. Remove the bottom plate

Removing the bottom plate is an easy job – you have to undo 10 Torx-head screws. And after that, you have to pop the bottom plate with a pry tool and that’s all.


2. Battery

The battery has a capacity of just 42Wh and maybe that’s a bit low for a 15.6-inch notebook.

When it comes to storage, the laptop is equipped with an M.2 PCIe x4 slot and we can spot a free space for a 2.5-inch SATA device but there is no additional connector in the box of the notebook so you have to buy a third party connector and that’s very odd. Unfortunately, the memory is soldered to the motherboard.

The cooling is upgraded compared to the AMD version of this laptop. There is one decently sized fan and a thick heat pipe but unlike the AMD version, here, we have an additional smaller heat pipe.
