1. Service lid
The service lid provides access to the storage devices, RAM slots and Wi-Fi card. It’s easily removed by unscrewing one bolt.
2. Storage, RAM and Wi-Fi card
Out unit shipped with just one M.2 SATA SSD with 256GB capacity. It’s manufactured by SanDisk with model number SD8SNAT-256G-1006 coming in 2280 size. The 2.5-inch HDD/SSD slot, however, was empty.
You can also see the two RAM slots, one of which is taken by a DDR4-2133 chip manufactured by Samsung.
The Wi-Fi card is positioned right next to one of the RAM slots – Intel 7265NGW.
3. Full disassembly and battery
Unfortunately, the battery cannot be accessed so easily and you need to perform a full disassembly of the machine. This includes the optical drive and keyboard as shown in the photos below.
Once the whole bottom is removed, the battery is easy to spot. It’s rated at 48Wh.
