When it comes to balancing between efficiency and performance, AMD definitely stood on top last year, and this is why more and more manufacturers introduced series, carrying one of them.

1. Remove the bottom plate
This notebook’s bottom panel is held in place by 7 Torx-head screws. First, you need to undo them, before you pry the panel with a plastic tool.
As you can see, the battery pack is rather beefy. It has a capacity of 71Wh.
3. Memory and storage
Unsurprisingly, the memory is soldered to the motherboard. It comes in three variants – 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB of DDR4 RAM, working at 3200 MHz. On the bright side, Lenovo has included one M.2 slot, which supports PCIe x4 drives with lengths of 80mm and 42mm.
4. Cooling system
The cooling system here looks solid, with two heat pipes, a heat sink with a decent size, and a fan.
