1. Remove the bottom plate

To access the internals, you need to undo 12 Phillips-head screws. One of them lifts the bottom plate, which produces a gap where you can start the prying process.

2. Battery

It has a 90Wh battery pack, which lasts up to 13 hours of Web browsing, or 11 hours of video playback. To take it out, unplug the connector from the motherboard, and remove all four Phillips-head screws holding it to the chassis.

3. Memory and storage

To see the memory, remove the black strip. This reveals the two SODIMM slots, which work in dual-channel mode and fit DDR5 modules. Storage-wise, you get two M.2 PCIe x4 slots, both of which support Gen 4 drives.

4. Cooling system

The cooling looks improved, with two heat pipes common for the CPU and the GPU, with one additional for each of them. A fifth heat pipe deals with the VRMs and the graphics memory.
