1. Removing the service lid

If you are going to upgrade RAM or storage, you are in for a super easy upgrade. All you have to do is pop open the service lid and you will see this.

You will have access to the 2.5-inch HDD, which in our case is a Seagate 1TB unit. If you want to, you can stick in an M.2 SATA SSD located next to the RAM slots. There are three holes that should fit the three most used standards – 2280, 2260 and 2232.

2. Removing the back cover

If you wish to proceed for whatever reason, you should remove all the screws around the bottom. There are a few located under the service lid and three holding the plate under the optical drive. So before you do anything else, make sure you’ve removed the optical drive and unscrewed the three bolts beneath it.

4. Cooling system

The cooling system is modest and consists of only one heat pipe going through two main heatsinks for the CPU and GPU. The fan is located on the left side of the notebook pushing the hot air through the exhaust vent.
