1. Remove the bottom plate

Probably the last two or three HP laptops did have some sort of rubberized sorcery that hid half of their screws from plain sight. This notebook is no exception. In addition to the four visible Phillips-head screws, there are 7 more of the same type beneath the rubber feet.


2. Battery

As of the battery, it is a 41.7Wh unit.


3. Memory and storage

There are two RAM SODIMM slots that support up to 8GB of DDR4 memory each for 16GB in total. Storage-wise, there is one 2.5″ SATA drive slot, as well as an M.2 that supports both PCIe and SATA drives.


4. Cooling system

So, the cooling solution features one heat pipe that is average in size. Although the fan is a little smaller than usual, we think that the nonpretentious hardware wouldn’t mind it.
