1. Remove the bottom plate
First, you need to remove the optical drive tray. It is held in place by a single Phillips-head screw. Then, there are 13 more Phillips-head suckers waiting for you all around the panel.
Sadly, the battery has merely 30Wh of capacity.
3. Memory and storage
To access the memory, you have to peel the insulation shield. While on the storage side, there is an M.2 slot for quick storage and a 2.5″ SATA drive slot.
4. Cooling system
As of the cooling – we are seeing the same wanky system seen on the Acer Aspire 3 (A315-34). It features a fan that just spins the air around the chassis, a large cooling plate, dissipating the heat from the processor.
