HP has tried to produce a budget business notebook that should offer a somewhat stylish look and a big deal of versatility. You could say that they did a good job when you look at what it has on the inside.
1. Remove the bottom plate
Not again… HP has once again tried to trick us, ladies and gentlemen. As soon as we saw the bottom panel on this device we felt a cold sweat run down our foreheads. There are only four Phillips-head screws naked to the eye. However, you need to remove the two long rubber feet as they house four more screws. Thankfully, our plastic pry tool is exactly the same size as the feet, and we were able to easily remove them, without destroying them.
While the battery is not the biggest, seen on a 14-inch laptop, it is also not the smallest – 41Wh.
3. Memory and storage
This device has two RAM SODIMM slots for up to 16GB of memory in total. Additionally, you can upgrade the storage with an M.2 PCIe NVMe drive, and a 2.5″ SATA drive slot.
4. Cooling system
So, cooling is nothing extraordinary. Only one, rather thin, heat pipe and a medium-sized fan.
