This device is pretty easy to open. You need to undo only 4 Torx-head screws. Then, pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool, and lift it away from the chassis.

Inside, we see a 63.3Wh battery. It lasted us for 10 hours of Web browsing, or 9 hours of video playback. To take the battery out, you first need to unplug the battery connector. Then, undo all 5 Phillips-head screws. Lastly, remove the battery from the body of the laptop.

Unfortunately, the memory is soldered to the motherboard. On the bright side, it uses DDR4 chips, working at 3200 MHz in dual-channel mode. As for the storage, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot.

Here, you can see that the cooling solution is pretty capable. There are two heat pipes, a long heat sink, and two fans. Additionally, the VRMs are cooled by a metal plate.
