1. Remove the bottom plate

To get inside this notebook, you first need to unplug the SIM card tray. Then, undo all 9 captive Phillips-head screws, and pry the panel open with a plastic tool.


2. Battery

Here, we find a 45Wh battery pack, which lasts for 7 hours of Web browsing, or nearly 6 hours of video playback. To remove it, unplug the battery connector, and remove all three Phillips-head screws, holding it in place.


3. Memory and storage

It is great to see that there are two SODIMM slots for memory upgrades of up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM. Storage-wise, there are two options. The one here involves a secondary board, which houses one M.2 PCIe x4 slot. The other one features an additional 2.5-inch SATA drive bay.


4. Cooling system

Cooling-wise, there is one heat pipe, connecting to a heat sink, where a medium-sized fan blows the heat away from the chassis. It’s also good to see that the VRMs are also being cooled.
