Traditionally, the Chromebook devices are not powerhouses. Instead, they are meant to be daily drivers, and this particular device, showed us tremendous battery life, despite its low battery capacity.
1. Remove the bottom plate
In order to open the bottom plate of this device, you need to unscrew 12 Phillips-head screws. Then, use a plastic pry tool to gently pop the panel out of the chassis.
While the battery is only a 36Wh unit, it should deliver a decent screen on time, thanks to the efficient chipset.
3. Motherboard and Wi-Fi card
To no surprise, we see a lack of a fan, making the device completely silent. Sadly, the motherboard is turned upside down, and we don’t have a visual on the cooling solution. Additionally, you will be able to upgrade neither the memory nor the storage. However, it uses 4GB of LPDDR4 memory, as well as 32GB of eMMC storage.
In this image, you can see the soldered Wi-Fi card, made by Qualcomm. It has a model number QCNFA324. Its main responsibility is the wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, supporting WiFi 802.11ac.
