Removing the bottom cover
You have to remove 11 Philips screws, in order to open the bottom cover and take a look inside. Two of them hold the battery, so you can’t remove it without a screwdriver. There is one screw for the DVD holder in the optical drive as well.
2.5” HDD/SSD drive, WLAN, RAM, Fans, Battery
Once you remove the cover, you gain access to everything you may need to service or upgrade – the 2.5” HDD/SSD drive, two RAM slots, cooling system (with one fan), WLAN module etc. Unfortunately, you don’t have an M.2 slot for storage (you can check our M.2 compatibility list).
In our unit, we have:
- 45Wh/2800mAh battery, made by Sanyo (PA5186U-1BRS)
- 1x 4096MB RAM, Samsung 1Rx8 PC3L-12800S-11-13-B4 (M471B5173QH0-YK0)
- Synaptics TM3123 trackpad
