1. Remove the bottom plate
In order to take this laptop apart, you need to undo 11 Phillips-head screws. After that, remove the stylus from its chassis, and pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool.
To power the laptop when it’s not plugged into the wall, Acer has put a 50Wh battery pack.
3. Memory and storage
Sadly, but unsurprisingly, the memory is soldered to the motherboard. The maximum you can get is 16GB of DDR4 RAM. On the other side, this is another laptop that features two M.2 NVMe drive slots. This trend is becoming more popular, which can only come as redemption to the users.
