1. Remove the bottom plate

The manufacturer used Torx-head screws to attach the bottom plate to the chassis. There are 11 of them and after you unscrew them, you can simply pry it up with a plastic tool.


2. Battery

As of the battery – it is a 56Wh unit, which is pretty decent, given the size of the device. What we didn’t really like, however, is mounting. Acer uses three sticky straps that have pull-tabs for safe removal. Okay, but this means you need to buy new ones every time you take out the battery pack. Indeed this is not a thing that you do on a daily basis, but if you are a part of the Acer service team, well… we are not envious of you… not at all.


3. Memory and storage

Quite expectedly, we didn’t see any RAM SODIMM slots, which means the memory is soldered and you can’t do anything about it. On the bright side, it has a single M.2 slot that supports PCIe x4 drives.


4. Cooling system

Our sight was caught immediately by the cooling solution. There is a huge fan used to blow the heat away from the heat sink. However, how does the heat transfer from the CPU to the heat sink? Well, through two heat pipes. They cover both the processor and the graphics chip, so we hope that the capacity is going to be enough.
