1. Remove the bottom plate

Removing the bottom plate is easy – you have to unscrew 11 Phillips head screws and after that, you can pop the bottom panel with the aid of a plastic pry tool.

The battery is a small 37Wh unit but that seems normal for an affordable 14-inch laptop.

The cooling is rather basic – it relies on one fan, one heat sink, and a single heat pipe.
