This laptop is extremely easy on the budget. Nevertheless, Lenovo has done some black wizardry to make it as high-quality of a product as possible.

1. Remove the bottom plate

To get inside this laptop, you need to undo all 10 Phillips-head screws.


2. Battery

This device is sold with a 38Wh or a 45Wh battery pack. We got the larger one and it lasts for nearly 9 hours of Web browsing, or about 7 hours of video playback.


3. Memory and storage

There is one SODIMM slot that works in conjunction with either 4 or 8GB of soldered RAM. In terms of storage, we got one M.2 PCIe x4 slot. If you opt for the smaller battery pack, you will get a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay.


4. Cooling system

The cooling comprises a single heat pipe, which connects to a medium-sized heat sink. A standard fan blows the heat away from the device.

Nevertheless, what should be more likable is what we would find inside. In contrast[...]
