Although we weren’t able to perform most of our tests, it was good to see that the upgradability is decent on this unit.
1. Remove the bottom plate
Accessing this laptop’s internals is a relatively easy job. First, you need to undo 12 Phillips-head screws. Then, pry the bottom panel away with a plastic tool and you’re ready for taking off.
Battery-wise we have a 50Wh unit, which is secured in place by some scotch tape. Perhaps the regular screws are too expensive nowadays.
3. Memory and storage
On the bright side, from the upgradability standpoint, we are seeing a 2020 set up – two RAM SODIMM slots and an M.2 NVMe slot.
4. Cooling system
Inside, you’ll see a lot of free space and a pretty modest cooling solution, comprising a tiny heat pipe, a heat sink, and a fan.
