1. Remove the bottom plate

To get inside of this notebook, you need to undo a total of 11 Phillips-head screws. After you do that, pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool and remove it from the chassis.

2. Battery

This device is equipped with a 53Wh battery pack. It lasts for 9 hours of Web browsing, or about 7 hours and 30 minutes of watching videos. Also, it is pretty easy to remove with only two Phillips-head screws holding it in place.

3. Memory and storage

When it comes to memory, there are either 4 or 8GB of DDR4 RAM soldered to the motherboard, with one SODIMM slot for further expansion. Storage-wise, you get only one M.2 PCIe x4 slot.

4. Cooling system

Thankfully, it looks like the processor is properly cooled with two heat pipes connecting to a large heat sink. Lastly, two fans blow the heat away from the device.
